Street Notes

Over the past decade, Chang has used temporary spray chalk to create temporary messages on the sidewalks of the places she’s lived, including New Orleans, Helsinki, and New York City. In New Orleans, she created a public note of gratitude and stenciled it around her neighborhood. In Helsinki, she created a love note to her friends in front of their apartments and favorite places around the city on the day she moved away. In New York City, she marked spots on the sidewalks of her Chinatown neighborhood to promote more greenery.
