Candy Chang is a public installation artist, a designer, an urban planner, and co-founder of Civic Center in New Orleans. With all the proper permission, Candy turned the wall of an abandoned house into a giant chalkboard for the neighborhood to write on. The “Before I Die” installation has the following text: “Before I die I want to _______________“. There are little chalk containers hooked to the wall, holding various colors of chalk. People are free to write in their hopes and aspirations in the blank line.
