The Craigslist Project turns Internet anonymity into art

I would have never thought you could turn craigslist into art. For those who don’t know (really?), craigslist is one of the oldest – if not the oldest – free classified sites on the web. There’s really everything there, kind of a cesspool in some sections. Heck, I found a couple of jobs on craigslist and they weren’t all that enjoyable. Caveat emptor.

This is pretty cool work!

The Craigslist Project, Samantha Allen’s first exhibit, is a collection of original photographs and written ads that she submitted to the popular classifieds website in the hopes that she might receive intriguing or otherwise noteworthy responses — which, for the most part, she did.
