Miranda July’s App Let Strangers Break Up With You

“I see this as far-reaching public art project, inciting performance and conversation about the value of inefficiency and risk,” reads the press release for Somebody, Miranda July’s app. The idea is to make a commentary on how we avoid talking to people, so if you use the app you can find a nearby stranger that can deliver whatever message for you. The short movie above illustrates this dynamic.
