Candy Chang ~~ Before I Die

It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. With help from friends and neighbors, I turned the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood into a giant chalkboard to invite people to share what is important to them. Before I Die transforms a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us. It’s a question that changed me over the last year after I lost someone I loved very much. I also believe the design of our public spaces can better reflect what’s important to us as residents and as human beings. The responses and stories from passersby while we were installing it have already hit me hard in the heart. I’ve received an incredible response to this project (thank you!) and many things are in development including a kit with a large, one-column mylar stencil and how-to guide to make it easy to produce a wall with your community (fill out this form if you want to be notified when it’s ready). We’ve created limited edition paintings to help support the project

No one spotted one bit of it says "fuck in zero gravity?"

Second from the top on the left. "Fuck" is in pink.

i'm pretty sure the one 2 below 'fuck in zero gravity' says 'eat swan'.

I've started eating meat again, but i doubt i'd ever eat a swan. Especially in England, we can get royally fucked for that.
Death is the only certainty. EVERYTHING else is variable.

Fuck the law, we live in a so called democracy, that means supposedly we are all equal, what is good enough for the queen is good enough for anyone else :) I know you said you wouldnt try it, but it should be down to your choice, based on your tastes, not some archaic law that encourages a divide between classes. You'd only get in trouble if you got caught anyhow.

The idea of changs work is very clever though, its one of those ones where you kick yourself for not thinking it up yourself cos it seems so obvious :)
