Before I Die

Public installation artist Candy Chang transformed her New Orleans neighborhood by repurposing an abandoned home into an inspirational chalkboard. Local residents chalk up their hopes and dreams onto the giant wall.

"It's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. Before I Die transforms neglected spaces into constructive ones where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us. It's about improving both our physical spaces and our individual well-being." -Chang

  1. Haha love the pirate. Great idea though, it is so easy to forget the awesome instead of the mundane.
