Amy Elkins Parting Words

Parting Words, a visual archive created by Amy Elkins from 2009 into the present, out of mug shots and testimony readily available through public record of the 556 inmates executed in Texas since 1976, the year the ban on capital punishment was overturned. Using an algorithm, each mug shot is converted into looping excerpts from last utterances ranging from confessions to hymns, sorrows to fears. Parting Words is a work in progress, growing in size with the growing numbers of those executed in Texas, a state responsible for over 37% of all executions in the United States, which is more than the totals of Virginia, Oklahoma, Florida, Missouri, Georgia and Alabama combined.
