“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts.” - Søren Kierkegaard
Pedestrians in the city often find themselves walking in deep thought. A routine trip can prompt reflections on everything from future goals to last night’s dinner conversation. To encourage self-evaluation in transit, Candy created Sidewalk Psychiatry and posed critical questions on the pavements of New York City with stencils and temporary spray chalk. It’s public therapy, free of charge.
