A friend of ours , who is currently filming a documentary on graffiti surrounding the red line in DC (more on this in a few), put us up on Candy Chang’s work, and this recent interactive piece in New Orleans is beautiful in its simplicity, beauty and interactivity.

While many street artists will simply be content with repeating motifs, throwing their own moniker or image up on a wall, it’s refreshing to see something so endearing and anonymous, yet serving its audience with more than just visual stimulation.

This is what she had to say about this installation:

One month later and seven hours of stenciling today, and it’s up! With a lot of help and support from old and new friends, I turned the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood into a giant chalkboard where residents can fill in the blank and remember what is important to them in life. It’s also about turning a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us…

Check out this link for a panoramic of all the responses. Candy, we’re loving your work! From your sticker series to these installation pieces, We love seeing such straight-up positive inspiration!
