Last Words is a text-based work consisting of death row prisoners' final statements. Forgiveness, apologies, and declarations of love are interspersed with phrases alluding to death. Camnitzer collected these phrases from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s website, and reprinted those that include the word “love.” Printed in reddish brown toned ink on six sheets of paper measuring approximately five and a half by four feet each, these works’ human scale mirrors viewers’ bodies.
