The SF Mirrors Project

A San Francisco artist, Akin Bilgic, is attempting to start a movement to put up inspirational messages on mirrors throughout the San Francisco area. According to Bilgic, the purpose is to spread a bit of random happiness with messages of inspiration, encouragement, and hope. Bilgic hopes to use social media like Twitter and Facebook to spread the word and get funding to buy more mirrors. He is using shatterproof and plastic mirrors so no one and nothing gets damaged.

Bilgic states:

Will the SF Mirrors Project fix the problems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant or help the rebels in Libya? Nope. But it will probably do some small part to increase aggregate human well-being.

In light of the crazy world we live in and all of the absurd things that go on in this world, this little movement struck me as inspiring, and I felt the need to share. As Bilgic recognizes, this movement is not going to end world hunger, poverty, etc; but, it has the possibility to turn someones day around.
