“I Wish I Said Hello” isn’t the first website to put an artistic spin on Craigslist’s Missed Connections section (Sophie Blackall created a blog dedicated to creating hand-drawn renderings of particularly poignant Missed Connections in NYC) but it adds a novel twist to the subject, by pasting stickers representing Missed Connections that can be tied back to specific locations.
Lisa Park and Adria Navarro, two students at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program are collaborating on the project, and have created a template to help additional contributors participate in expanding the concept’s presence, both in its current Manhattan home and beyond.
