Before I Die - Candy Chang

chalked responses to the prompt Before I Die

Stumbled across this project. Sadly, it looks like I missed it when it was installed in Boston in early September but what a cool idea! Candy Chang thought about death a lot after she lost someone close to her. This "Before I Die..." project came from thinking about what's important to her and the people around her. She turned the side of an abandoned house in her New Orleans neighborhood into a giant chalkboard asking people to share their hopes and dreams. And they did. Before I Die I Want To... see my daughter graduate, write a book, understand, be ok with not understanding, swim in a pool of golden retriever puppies, beat sense into you...

The project has spread to cities around the world and been translated into several languages. You can go to the project's website to buy a kit that helps you make your own wall. If you don't want to buy the kit, she's also given instructions on how to make your own kit.

Read more about it at the artist's page: http://candychang.com/before-i-die-in-nola/

I love this project. I love the photos of people standing in small clusters around the wall, reading what others have written, chatting with others. I love that her interactive art project coaxes people into interacting with each other as well as with the wall.

So....your turn to finish the prompt.

Before I die I want to....
