    Spaces between us digital epitaphs to non-events

    The preponderance of the digital creates, in and of itself, a segue to a post-digital era. I've intertwined Craigslist missed connections ads and articles about online dating and missed connections into a short narrative that speaks about the intersection between digital and physical.  This selection of ads, like pixels, forms a much larger picture that is connected by invisible strands that each reader brings to the spaces between themselves. When browsing the missed connection section of Craigslist it is as if viewing a memorial of interactions that didn't occur and, in a sense, is formative of a projected memory. 

    Each story serves as a private memento and yet the medium is broadcast indiscriminately in a type of public forum. Perhaps more interesting than the notes themselves are the spaces they describe and our own attempts to explore the spaces between us.
