before I die _____

24 comments



I love this project.

"...Candy Chang turned the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans into a giant chalkboard where residents can write on the wall and share what is important to them. Before I Die is an interactive public art project that transforms neglected spaces into constructive places where we can discover the hopes and aspirations of the people around us."

There's an online version you can participate in too.

I love the idea of making people think about what they dream of or what goals they'd like to reach. As for myself:
Before I die: I want to reach spritual maturity while living the life God has planned for me.

Awww, this is such a sweet project! My college tried to do something similar to this with big chalkboard blocks, but people just ended up writing stupid things on it, so it wasn't nearly as lovely.
