I decided to put up the posters on the side of a (more or less) abandoned building a block away
from my house. The wall I posted them on was so blank and open I thought it would work perfectly.
And it did!
I figured there was enough space on the wall that I would just put them up side by side a good
distance apart. I always put up the posters the night before they were supposed to go up just
to make sure no one really saw me doing it. The first couple days went off without any problems.
As I was walking home from school on the third day I noticed the second and third posters were
missing—the first poster remained in place. I thought maybe they’d just fallen off of the wall,
but I couldn’t find them anywhere. I figure someone must’ve taken them, but why would they take
only those two and leave the first?! This has been plaguing me ever since it happened, but I
proceeded to put up the posters like the other two were still there. When it snowed over the
weekend, the first poster fell off and ended up making its home on the ground beside an old
mattress. When the snow stopped, I resumed posting like usual and the rest of the posters
haven’t been touched so far. I documented the wall today.
