Before I die...

What is that one thing that you've always thought 
'I defnitely need to do that before I die'?

We all do it, whether its getting that dream job, travelling around the world or maybe it's just too personal to say outloud..
Candy Chang, a public installation artist, created a giant chalkboard where residents could express what was really important to them. It turns neglected areas, like this space in New Orleans, into somewhere where you can learn the hopes and dreams of people around you.
Such a simply idea which makes you question yourself too.
Personal favourites: "paint a picture that makes people cry" and "be a youtube sensation".
Once the board is full, the board is washed and it starts again with a clean slate. The responses are kept on record though.
So, what do you want to do before you die?

Before I die I want to see the Northern Lights.
