Participation Through Stickers: What Do You Wish This Was?

A simple sticker that says "I WISH THIS WAS" gives New Orleans residents a way to comment directly on their communities.

Candy Chang, a designer, urban planner, and artist, created the stickers.

From her project statement:

"New Orleans is full of vacant storefronts and people who need things. My neighborhood is still without a full-service grocery store. So I 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 custom vinyl and 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."
