before i die...

 "When Candy lost someone she loved very much, she thought about death a lot. This helped clarify her life but she struggled to maintain perspective. She wanted a reminder and she wanted to know what was important to the people around her. "

So she took this building.

And made it to look like this.

So people could do this.

Since 2011 the concept has taken off in other countries, inspiring even more people to think about what is important in life.

Before I die I want to make a living doing what I love.
Before I die I want to see my daughter fall in love.
Before I die I want to celebrate my 60th wedding anniversary.
Before I die I want to feel like I left the world a better place than it was when I came into it.

What do you want to do before you die?

All images are from here, where you can find out more about the project and the artist Candy Chang.


  1. Before I Copying you, I too want to see my son fall in love. Beyond that, I just can't think of anything, really.

    What an amazing project. Thank you for sharing.

  2. This is so awesome. Thanks for sharing Bree.

    Before I die I want to be a mother and raise a child.
    Show my child as much of the world as I possibly can.
    Move to the country :)
