Art Full: Missed Connections

I had never experienced art that made me feel like I am sitting down with a brilliant novel until I discovered Sophie Blackall's Missed Connections Project. 

Face Painter

She describes her work on her blog this way...

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 websites. 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. I'm trying to pin a few of them down.

Much (Petal) Love,
