Candy Chang

Candy Chang is a public installation artist, designer, urban planner, and co-founder of  Civic Center who likes to make cities more comfortable people.

Below are 2 censorship posters she designed ‘To highlight the censorship that still muffles citizens around the world’.
In another project titled ‘I wish this was’ Candy Chang ‘made these fill-in-the-blank stickers to provide an easy tool to voice what we want, where we want it. Just fill them out and put them on abandoned buildings and beyond. The stickers are vinyl and they can be easily removed without damaging property. It’s a fun, low-barrier tool for citizens to provide civic input on-site, and the responses reflect the hopes, dreams, and colorful imaginations of different neighborhoods.’

Whilst some of the stickers are purely answered with convenience others are quite deep and meaningful.

And the final project I am going to post is ‘Before I Die’ Candy Chang says, ‘It’s easy to get caught in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you. With support from old and new friends, I turned the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood into a giant chalkboard to invite my neighbors to remember and share what is important to them. Before I Die transforms neglected spaces into constructive ones where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us. It’s about improving both our physical spaces and our individual well-being.’ Below a before and after shot of the building used for the project.
