Today I discovered a very awesome project by Candy Chang an artist who explores the relationship between public space and personal well-being. Before I die is a project where she installed a big blackboard with the header before I die I want to _____ . Everybody is invited to join this project and tell others their dreams, wishes and deepest thoughts. The motivation came by going through the process of losing someone she loved and contemplaining about death till depressions and anger, then gratitude fot the time together and then contemplating death. She said:“This helped clarify my life, the people I want to be with, and the things I want to do, but I struggled to maintain perspective.” After putting her project into practice the feedback was immense. At least also Oprah Winfrey invited her to her show to tell the world about this hearttouching project of Candy Chang.
