Before I Die is a public art project that invites people to reflect on their lives and share their personal aspirations in a public space. Originally created by New Orleans artist Candy Chang in 2011 on an abandoned house in her neighborhood after losing someone she loved, the wall has been recreated by residents around the world. Today there are over 350 walls in 60 countries and 25 languages.
The wall shown here, installed by Chang in the Warehouse District of New Orleans, Louisiana, celebrates the project in the city where it all began and is the first wall in New Orleans since the original abandoned house has become someone’s home again.
I enjoyed pondering along this wall and reading the comments… Some serious, some silly, but certainly makes you think.
You can learn more about the project here.
