New Orleans: Before I Die project

With all the current troubles in the world it’s reassuring to see people still fighting the good fight in areas still recoving from natural disasters, in this case New Orleans. A local artist and urban planner, Candy Chang, decided that rather than look upon the same delapidated house in her neighbourhood, an installation piece offering ideas of hope and change could make a positive difference.

Here residents can fill in the blank and remember what is important to them in life. Candy says “It’s also about turning a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us.”
