Valentine's Day Love Letter Scavenger Hunt!

I'm constantly excited by story/art installations in the world that spark people's imagination.

The idea of turning a corner and seeing something impossible there, that changes the way you see things.

Along those lines, I am creating a love letter scavenger hunt in the San Francisco Mission for Valentine's Day 2013.

With the help of a group of friends, I'll be hiding 100 love letters for strangers to find, each in a bottle tied to a bright, giant red balloon.

The idea is to have red balloons peeking out from all corners of the Mission, encouraging passersby to read the letters inside.

The floating messages-in-a-bottle will be secured down and hidden in shops, alleyways, and in plain sight.

I hope the scavenger hunt encourages wonder, whimsy, and hopeless romantics all over the Bay area.

Several businesses in the Mission (including Ourshelves, Viracocha and more) have already agreed to host stops on the scavenger hunt, and I'm creating a clue map to lead hunters on their way.

Myself and several friends will also be heavily documenting with video to share online at

This will be a free event in an effort to add more awesome to the world.
