This is a video based of Craigslists Missed Connections section in their online classifieds. I used real ads from around Kansas City and went to the actual locations where the missed connections happend. I then recorded various people reading the ads, blurring the gender of the actual ads.
In taking the project further I went back to some of the locations and made "interventions" putting the actual ad in that public space. The photos below are my documentation of making a cake in a supermarket, putting up a window static cling on a coffee shop window, and slipping in bookmarks which had the text from the original ads.
Responses to this project and video would be greatly appreciated.
