"Before I Die"
April 22, 2012 - Jennifer Brookens
I stumbled upon an interesting web site tonight: an interactive art project by Candi Chang of New Orleans. Part graduation thesis, and part dealing with the loss of a loved one, Chang converted a side of an abandoned building into "Before I Die." The "Chalkboard" has the stenciled lines that state, "Before I die I want to ______." The answers fill in quickly, several times in just one day. The answers range from silly ("Eat salad with an alien") to thoughtful ("Abandon all insecutities") to creative ("Straddle the International date line"). It's made me reflect on the things I want/need to accomplish before my time is up. Check it out for yourselves at http://candychang.com/before-i-die-in-nola/

The wall after it was filled. After the board is filled, it is documented, photographed, then washed down to be filled out again.
