According to Wikipedia, a ‘missed connection’ is an occurrence where two or more people are unable to exchange contact information or the information that is exchanged is lost. This simple street art project called I Wish I Said Hello encourages everyone to rekindle their missed connection stories in the public space in the form of street art. The goal is not to be another platform for reconnection, rather, a celebration of everyday poetics, a physical mapping of a digital network, and a commentary on the role of technology in human communication. Have you ever had a missed connection? This would be great for you.
