Heartbroken Unsent Text Messages Are Transformed Into Art by Röra Blue
Titled The Unsent Project, blogger and artist Röra Blue’s most recent endeavor chronicles the painful and unsaid words from former lovers. The heartbroken excerpts allude to nostalgia, happy memories, and painful setbacks, which connote bottled feelings, which prevent once happy lovers from moving on. They illustrate the complexity of feelings and the difficulty the human mind and heart endures when a relationship ends.
She explains on her site: “State your first love’s name and type what you would say if you sent them a text message. Also include the color that you think of when you think of your first love.” After receiving over 25,000 proposals on Instagram, the artist created a colored college of the submission, which detail hundreds of unspoken words, unrealized dreams and intimate thoughts.
Illustrating words many of us have thought, Blue’s project is a conceptual and hypothetical release for the heartbroken soul. They are private wishes, which we are too ashamed to say out loud out of fear of rejection.
