I WISH THIS WAS: an Urban Design Takeover


Ever spot those ‘Hello, My Name Is’ stickers around town, but after a double take realize they say ‘I Wish This Was’ instead? None other than urban design-chic Candy Chang is behind the I WISH THIS WAS project, along with the Civic Center. When made aware of this new project, NoDef learned that the inspiration came from the lack of grocery stores in Chang’s neighborhood; the CC’s Kristina Kassem recently elaborated: “stickers were created to give people of the community an outlet to voice their opinions as to what they would like to see in their neighborhood.”

 

The (custom) vinyl (easily and cleanly removable) stickers were first introduced in November of 2010 at the Ethnographic Terminalia exhibit at Nola’s  Du Mois Gallery, and as of this week are on sale online in packs of 20, 50, and 100. All proceeds will support the creation of more public art and developments in public spaces (a la those Sexy Trees). The stickers don’t stop here- this spring, look out for ‘Neighborland’…the digital realization of this project’s current physical (and tangible) state…hola the future.
