Some time ago the Project Live Love team was introduced to an artist by the name of Shepard Fairey and his work OBEY Giant. In 1989 Shepard began a street art campaign based on a design that he had created of Andre the Giant’s face. The main piece they used was a sticker. He and others began posting these stickers wherever they went. Soon the stickers began showing up in many major cities across the U.S. The purpose of this campaign was nothing more than an exercise in phenomenology which is “the process of letting things manifest themselves.” The sticker had no meaning but existed only to cause people to react, contemplate and search for meaning in the sticker. The sticker became a phenomenon in Gen-X culture.
The more we looked at Fairey’s work and how he was able to create a cultural impact by using a sticker, it only made sense that we would follow suit with a similar campaign. Only our campaign has a message… LIVE LOVE. We hope that, through posting these stickers, we can affect the minds and hearts of people who come in contact with them. We want to evoke a reaction. Whether you are touched by it’s simple message at a glance, or you search out it’s meaning to find this website, the Live Love stickers are designed to cause us all to think more about living love.
LIVE LOVE Stickers
3.5″ Heart-Circle Stickers
Put the stickers on your car, in your mirror, on your computer etc… Post the stickers where you will see them and be reminded to live love. Then pass the stickers on. Give some to your friends, put a stack out at work, or post some in your neighborhood where others will see them and might consider it’s message. Be creative, have fun, but please… do not be disrespectful with the placement of your Live Love Stickers.
We are trying to collect as many photos of Live Love Stickers as possible. We want to see where the stickers end up. If you spot a sticker in an interesting location take a photo and send it to us. You can send an e-mail with your photo attached to email@example.com, upload it below or post it on our facebook wall.
