"when I start to look for you you always stop" (2014)


For this project, I took a few ads from Craigslist Missed Connections and took phrases that resonated with me. One that I especially connected with was: "When I start to look for you you always stop." This was part of an ad named "Screaming in Friendship."

I took a stencil of this one line from the ad and I sprayed it with water onto surfaces as I walked through Pittsburgh. Sometimes they would disappear before my eyes, and sometimes I would leave before they evaporated. Below are selected images from my documentation.
