Lost Worm

By Ruth Burke
lostwormCan You Help Me Find My Worm​ is a street­-art influenced flyer project. There are over 15 “LOST WORM” flyers posted on street poles in various neighborhoods from central to southeastern Ohio. Using absurdity, humor and the most basic technique to find a lost pet, the flyer asks the reader to consider a potential relationship between humans and worms while sharing positive aspects of keeping worms (eg. they will eat your garbage). Flyers are posted on common dog­walking routes in my neighborhood. Many people that have companion animals will read “lost pet” flyers and hopefully be amused by the absurdity. The flyer provided a bit.ly shortcut to building your own worm bin on instructable.com. The project can be qualitatively assessed by linking Google Analytics to the Instructable article and tracking the bit.ly as the referral source. lostwormposted
