Fill in the blank

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Brilliant! Candy Chang, a public installation artisit set up a project where she turned the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood into a giant chalkboard with only one purpose: to fill in the blank. She said that the project was intended to make people realize what's important to them in life (their hopes and aspirations). I spent the morning reading though the boards and it was such an uplifting and great experience. Dears, how would you finish the sentence? xox

P.S: You can read all the boards here.

(thanks Mandy)

This is so wonderful. What an amazing idea, I love it.
I would say...
Before I die I would want to know my sons will be safe.
Before I die I wish I could be part of an environmental revolusion.

Such a brilliant and inspiring concept! There are so many ways that i could think of re how i would end the sentence. Guess i have too many wishes:-). XX

Brittany..some of them are really funny and some are simply silly but many of them are truly beautiful. I'm still thinking how I would end the sentence..Hmm

Sarah said...

It's definitely not an easy sentence to finish but... Before I die I want to make an impact & be an impact to the people around me. In a positive way of course!

Thanks for sharing this amazing post, Diana! Hope all's been well with you. x

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Wow, I love this. I think what makes it so hard to answer is to only think of one thing. What is THE most important one? I'm going to think about this all day. I also thought it would be a fun thing to do at a party. Have everyone fill one out when they arrive and read them later and see if people can guess who wrote what :)

before i die.. i want to have a family :) xoxo jcd

Courtney Erin said...

This is so cool! I would finish the sentence, "help more people."

What a wonderful idea...this would be a great project to put on more abandon homes...and maybe plant a garden around them...or draw a garden on the chalk board! Hmm...

Okay, leave it to me to read the only terrible/disgusting one on the pics! YUCK.

But the rest are fantastic and it really is an inspiring idea...except for the 14 year-old smart a** who put in his two cents...(c;
