What is important to you

Public installation artist and urban planner Candy Chang converted a wall of an abandoned home in her New Orleans neighborhood into something inspiring. With chalkboard paint, stencils and some chalk, residents can now write their dreams on this wall.  (Found via Honest WTF.)

From the artist: "Before I Die transforms neglected spaces into constructive ones where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us."

Once the wall is filled, the board will be washed with water and they will start with a clean slate again. The artist is documenting all responses and some will be included in a book.  There have been requests for this to be installed in other cities.  A project site is in the works.

More projects from Candy Chang can be seen here.
