I Wish This Was

I Wish This Was
2010New Orleans, LA Interactive public art project that invites residents to share their hopes for vacant buildings. Chang placed boxes of free stickers in businesses around the city and posted thousands of stickers on vacant buildings across New Orleans, so anyone walking by could fill one out. The stickers are vinyl and can be easily removed without damaging property. Responses ranged from the functional to the poetic: I wish this was… a butcher shop, a community garden, a bike rack, a place to sit and talk, an affordable farmer’s market, a taco stand, a donut/flower shop, full of nymphomaniacs with PhDs, a source of tasty healthy food I could afford, my art gallery, your dream, Heaven. Part of the Ethnographic Terminalia exhibition at Du Mois Gallery, New Orleans. 2010, New Orleans.
