Ok who has been keeping this woman a secret from me? And she lives in New Orleans – 2 hours away.. (please imagine me going on in wonderfully over-the-top descriptive terms about how creative and clever she is here so I can get on with the post and show you.)

Candy Chang is an artist, designer, and urban planner who makes cities more comfortable for people. She’s passionate about redefining the ways we share information in public space to improve our neighborhoods and our personal well-being. This is her Before I Die project in NOLA, she painted the side of an abandoned house with blackboard paint and encouraged people to write what they wanted to do before they died on it. What a beautiful piece of art / motivational movement.

Each time the wall is full, a photo is taken and it is wiped clean. Look out for the book. I could feature everything this woman has done. It’s beautiful and I’m inspired… watch out world!

Thank you Candy Chang. You rock.
