Candy Chang is a world-renowned artist and urban designer. She engages communities to share everything from their greatest hopes to their deepest anxieties in public.

Through the activation of public spaces around the world, Chang provokes both playful and profound visions for how we can connect, reflect, and nurture the health of our communities.
