These spaces can better serve the people who live, work, and play in them

Before I die
Candy Chang is a public installation artist, designer, and urban planner who likes to make cities more comfortable for people. She co-founded Civic Center, an urban design studio in New Orleans where she combines architecture, graphic design, and urban planning to make thoughtful public spaces and communication tools for everyday issues of city life. She’s passionate about redefining the ways we use public space to share information important to our neighborhoods and to our individual well-being.

About the project
Once the wall is filled, we wash the board with water and start with a clean slate again. We are documenting all responses and some will be included in a book. A project site is in the works. I have received many requests from people who’d like to install it in their city, so we’re looking into ways to manufacture an affordable stencil (I made this one by hand. It is a lot of cutting). Stay tuned!
