These collages are informed by craigslist 'missed connections'. This category of the popular website yields vivid recollections from individuals in which they believe they shared an intimate moment with another human, but neglected to act upon the felt connection. The post is meant to serve as an effort to reconnect and otherwise capitalize on the missed connection.

Upon reading these posts, and absorbing the many details, I couldn't help but paint a picture in my head of these scenarios. They truly felt like verbal 'single scene narrative' paintings. And in turn I embraced the chronicle, and illustrated it with found and self constructed images.
