Valentine Love: Missed Connections


"Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. "

Such a cute idea! Artist Sophie Blackall's Missed Connections project is an ongoing series of paintings based on real, anonymous messages posted online by lovelorn strangers. Perhaps someone wrote in about you? Check it out here.
