Où et quand part deux

Sophie Calle did a project and about when and where she would die. I decided to take this idea and run with it, but BYU style.

The majority of the single population at BYU is obsessed with the question of, “When will I meet my eternal companion?” and sometimes can’t help but think, “Today is the day, I better put on my five inch stilettos and hike up the hill to campus so I can look good for Mr. Right.”

I’ve talked to friends and they say they’re BYU-brainwashed; whenever they meet a cute boy, they can’t help but think about dating him and, since we are at BYU, marrying him. Make a good first impression, boys, your eternal salvation is on the line.

Thus, I have decided to jump into the obsession of marriage (not that I was exempt from it before) and explore the hypothetical situation of when and where I will meet my future hubby. The heels are on, I’m going out!

*All pictures were taken with my iPhone to enhance the stalkerazzi-ness of the project.

Maybe I'll meet him as I am walking home from class...

Or maybe I'll meet him in a test review...

Or we'll both be stopped at a stop light, he'll look over at me, ask for my number, and we'll fall in love...

Maybe I'll meet him in the library where we'll strike up a conversation about finals and our attraction for one another...

Maybe he'll sit next to me in class...

Or maybe he'll come into my work...


  1. Fun idea. I hope the stalker photos sparked a convo with some of these guys. =) That would be a good "how we met" story.

  2. haha, that would make an excellent story... fun project idea, I like that it is personal and also makes a statement about BYU culture.

  3. Wow. Fabulous idea. This could apply to so many things at BYU because it is so inherently and mostly universally true. I like it and the story you've told.

  4. I like it a lot. I only wish there were more of it. I also was wishing for more commentary on the guys of a comedic and even judgmental nature, though that's likely due to my own twisted nature more than any shortcomings on your part.

    I think the context in which the project is established really makes it much more pertinent.

  5. This is hilarious! Way to portray BYU culture in such a truthful way. I love it.

  6. That's so funny and a little scary how realistic that is...its a hype that hits you a soon as you get here freshman year.
