We had blogged about Candy Chang’s interactive art piece “Before I Die” earlier this year; it was a fill-in-the-blank graffiti art piece that allowed folks to anonymously dip into their souls and say what they’d like to do before they meet their maker. It was a revelation. Art has many functions, but allowing a community to work together to create something…that’s pretty meaningful. Somehow, and we’re not sure how this happened, we managed to miss her other work? Today we’re really being affected positively by two more of her interactive artworks: “I Wish This Was” and “Neighborhood Doorknob Hangers.” The first allows folks to place stickers all over the city of New Orleans, hopefully on the windows of abandoned buildings or other parts of the city they’d like to change, and anonymously tell what they’d like to see. Some are answers like “grocery store” or “taco cart” or “bike rack.” Only a few are silly things like “heaven” or “Disneyland.” The door hangers are all about not closing yourself off to your neighbors, by giving your name, saying what you offer as a neighbor and basically giving an invite to introduce themselves to you. Really beautiful stuff. See more of her work on her website.
