In a society where communication is heavily mediated through virtual text messaging, the Unsent Project by conceptual artist Röra Blue draws attention to the romantic messages people wish they could have sent in her latest art project. The works feature printed out messages from random strangers that highlight a candidness to their hidden affection.

The Unsent Project explores the emotional weight many carry from the lack of being able to truly and wholeheartedly express their emotions to people they care about. THe project takes real life messages people never sent and puts them on display in a boxed smartphone conversational format. The pieces capture such candid moments as drunk confessionals and ongoing feelings of love to thoughts of longing had late at night.
