Just got this press release from a source. I am putting all the other posts in this one as well, and will update this post as it goes along.
The Strangers contacted me and said that the arrow to nowhere at 20th and Capp was a typo. It should just go left.
Aug. 1 UPDATE: The Strangers fixed that arrow error. Have about 30 photos of most of the stencils and tried my best and remembering which was where. Anyone who has an idea about posting the story in order, please pass links or let me know.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 7, 2007
"She Loves the Moon" is an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure story that takes place on the sidewalks of the Mission district in San Francisco. It is told in a new medium of storytelling that uses spraypainted stencils connected to each other by arrows. The streetscape is used as sort of an illustration to accompany each piece of text.
It's a love story involving two characters who start in different locations. His story starts at 16th and Valencia, in front of the Crown Hotel / Limon Restaurant with the text "He Leaves his Lonely Apartment." Her story starts at 21st and Guerrero in front of a victorian mansion with the text, "She Leaves her Lonely Apartment." Eventually their paths merge in front of Tartine Cafe at 18th and Guerrero, where they meet, and their paths travel together until relationship drama pulls them apart. Eventually their paths remerge, at which point there are two possible endings, happy and tragic, and two other points where the story can end unexpectedly if the viewer chooses the wrong ending. All in all, there are 4 possible endings.
We've posted a sampling of the photographs online.
