I Wish I Said Hello is a street art project that attempts to take the incomplete digital network of ‘Missed Connections’ back to the public space.
In collaboration with Adria Navarro, and hopefully with more people in the future, we create stickers that encapsulate specific stories taken from Craigslist. We combine parts of the original text with graphical elements that resonate with it. We use 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 are created, they are placed at the exact location where that missed connection happened, and documented on the website.
