    Before I Die: What is important to you by Candy Chang, New Orleans, 2011
    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. If you’re in New Orleans, stop by the corner of Marigny and Burgundy (900 Marigny Street) to add your thoughts to the wall and discover what matters most to your neighbors. 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.—Candy Chang

    Resolution Revolution! by Lisa Anne Auerbach, 2011
    Around January 1, 2011, I wrote down a list of things to consider for the new year. They weren’t resolutions, just things to keep in mind. I committed them to yarn the next day, knitting a large banner to keep me warm and to remind me of what I was thinking as 2011 was beginning. The stovetop espresso maker on the lower right signifies the start of something, a clean slate and a new day. Soonafter, I realized that many of the suggestions I’d collected were no longer important. I was a different person, but my communications were stuck coming from a former version of myself. Looking at the knitted piece, I imagine myself shouting through a tube from the past. The work is personal, but it’s no longer personally about me. Like the torn porn, the reference is to a time past, a brief moment, a snapshot.—Lisa Anne Auerbach

    Chalk Cliffs of Rügen by Caspar David Friedrich, 1818/19

    missed this.
    loved this.
    glad I sensed I was missing something and came a-callin’.

    chalk and I have such a love/hate relationship…sensitive eyes and bronchial passages make dust an insidious threat, but a love of the ephemeral keeps me thinking that one chalkboard wall somewhere in my home would be a “Very Good Thing, Indeed.”

    (unfortunately, I suspect the deeply-rooted Virgo tendency towards attempted perfection would catch me in a loop of write/erase/write/erase until I’d simply sit before said wall and wail. or hire one with steadier hands to come take dictation.)

    (how’s your penmanship, m’dear?)

    Wow! This is an OUTSTANDING series of work, and quite “chalky”. Kudos!
