Woman Gives People's Lost Items A Voice With Clever Tiny Signs (Photos)
People lose things during their commutes every day.
Whether it's your house keys, your wallet or just the fourth Chapstick you've purchased that week, we've all been there. But what happens to all of the things we lose on the street or leave behind in taxi cabs?
If it's not your wallet or iPhone, it probably hasn't found a new home.
In a recent series called Little Lost Project by Yoonjin Lee, the New York-based artist and designer collects all of the lost things she finds on the streets of New York and gives them a voice. How? Simply by giving each one an expressive cardboard sign to hold up.
In a description of the series on her site, Lee explains,
Losing your phone can ruin your day for sure but how about losing your favorite lip balm that you always keep in your pocket? It is definitely annoying but you can easily buy a new one. Ever wonder where and what these little objects are doing now?
