Candy Chang is an artist, currently living in New Orleans, who creates works that allow people to comment on their community. Through simple installations, Candy invites people to express their thoughts and dreams of what they want to see in the abandoned buildings around their neighborhood. I recommend looking through all her work (http://candychang.com), there is a wonderful play of scale, soliciting and highlighting an individual’s input, while at the same time, capturing a whole community’s state of mind. It’s reflective and aspirational.

What a great way to engage passers by. When is the project considered complete and what happens to people's feedback?
