the white brick wall (Feb 15th)


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.

Here are some pics of a teacher faculty room.
I put up the posters and a facebook “like” sign was drawn on the board.

The next day the number 2 was there.
Very clever those teachers : )

Antique shop on the night before Valentines (submitted by TB)

On Valentines, I drove by this shop to see the posters in person—they had all been removed.

Yesterday, I drove by with a friend and all of them had been replaced [see below]

Everyone is wondering how the posters were removed without tearing them.

(we’re just really really really impressed).

to the girl who apologized:

Your apology is accepted!!! And I would say that you should go take them down again and post them in your house, but tonight my best friend from texas was visiting and I was driving around SLC showing her all the places where people had reported seeing posters. Yesterday, I’d noticed the posters were down, so I wasn’t going to stop there, but I accidentally went straight on 3rd east when I should have gone left. AND THERE WERE THE POSTERS! We kind of started yelling in the car because we so happy and so surprised.

so THANK YOU! you restored them just in the nick of time.

Posted in a cement washout in Texas:

how to write a crazy love letter

*
there’s a junior high in my neighborhood. after school there’s a huge crowd of kids
hanging out on this grass ridge that has a cement washout to crawl down into and
hangout, sometimes you can see kids skateboarding in it, or drawing with chalk.
mostly they chat in small groups and wait for the ice cream truck. and when
it does—they move as quickly as is cool to, and form a haphazard line, where
boyfriends hold crumpled dollar bills and ask their sweetheart, orange
creamsicle or icecream sandwich?  (you know i’d go for the choco taco)
 
so in this washout i put up the love notes.
and the kids added their own.
 
lizzie loves robert
daniel loves ann
steve loves harper
tina loves sam
sydney loves michael
 
so i added mine too
rebeca loves david
 
and told the kids they could keep the posters.

Dear New York

I’m receiving a lot of hits from your lovely state,

but I don’t have any record of that portion of the installation.

If you live in New York & you see a poster, could snap a photo?

Please send to: crazyloveletter@gmail.com

First, some Passion Pit

Second, some photographs: how to write a crazy love letter

  

From our San Antonio curator:

 I was in my minivan with my 2 kids in tow and music blasting from the car.  
(I’m including a link to the song so you can feel the vibe of my trip a little more).  
Also, I think my almost 5 year old daughter’s outfit really adds to the overall feel.[…] She woke up
and put this outfit on over her jammies and was rocking it all day long.  When I told her to get ready
to leave, she threw her rhinestone studded pink cowgirl boots on and the outfit was complete.  
She looks like some sort of deranged yet adorable cupid.

THANK YOU!
(Your vacant lot between two gas stations is so lovely!)
