Street Art Project Pinpoints Missed Connections

In New York City a new project, I Wish I Said Hello, takes Craigslist's 'missed connections' from the internet to the street.

The Missed Connections pages on Craigslist provide humorous, heartbreaking, and sometimes creepy evidence of what seems to be a growing discomfort with live personal interaction. Artists Lisa Park and Adria Navarro, inspired by these "digital love notes", designed oversized stickers that look much like Google Map pinpoints. Each sticker features an illustration of the missed connection and is placed at the exact location of the encounter.

The project is documented on their website http://iwishisaidhello.org/
