"Unsent Project" Classic Tee
Unsent Project custom T-shirt with front print
The Unsent Project is a collection of over 40,000 unsent text messages to first loves. Messages are submitted anonymously from people all over the world. Rora Blue started the Unsent Project in 2015 to figure out what color people see love in. To investigate this, submissions are displayed on the color the submitter associates with their first love. The content of the submissions are wide ranging, encompassing just about every emotion. The term first love is open to interpretation and messages have been submitted to lovers, best friends, exes, parents, siblings, and even pets. The Unsent Project exists in both physical and digital forms. All texts are submitted and stored digitally in an online archive which can be sorted by name and color. Submissions are also printed out and turned into large collages on wood panel with resin. The collages explore the relationship between color and emotion. The Unsent Project has been featured in news outlets such as the Huffington Post, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Refinery 29, Women’s Health, and Good Morning America.
