Stuck on You, 2008
The week following Love Buttons, Stuck on You engaged a very different crowd of 18,000 to 20,000 festivalgoers attending a jazz and blues festival. During the two-day, 52-band event, the “Love Agents” and Gregory Sale gifted 14,600 stickers to festivalgoers. A sticker might say Sincerely, I am. Breathing. You. or I could jump into you, or and land without consequences. These stickers were stuck on pockets, bags, hats, and bodies. Signs bearing different texts were mounted on lampposts around the festival grounds.
The project created an interactive event that stimulated festivalgoers to engage in playful, real-time interactions. The audience was stimulated to engage with one another, with the “Love Agents,” the artist, and the site itself, thereby completing the experience of the happening through their own thoughts and actions.
