A street art project that attempts to take the incomplete digital network of ‘Missed Connections’ back to the public space.

In collaboration with Lisa Park, plus a few strangers that decided to join us, we created stickers that encapsulated specific stories taken from Craigslist. We combined parts of the original text with graphical elements that resonated with it, using a common, universal style derived from public signage, as well as shapes and colors that imply the digital origin of the story. Once the images were created, they were placed at the exact location where that missed connection happened, and documented on the website.
