Small World Big Dreams

An event supporting the Before I Die project: www.beforeidie.cc. What if I created a global event for myself and friends around the world, with the goal of feeling connected to one another despite physical distance? The event was called "Small World, Big Dreams," and was an invitation to my friends all over the world to create as many Before I Die walls as possible with me on the same day. Before I Die, a project started by artist Candy Chang, is an interactive community art project that asks viewers to finish the sentence: "Before I Die I want to..."

On May 5, 2012, myself and friends from Canada, the United States, Spain, Germany and Australia created walls. Locally, each of us felt connected in a new way to our own communities, touched, moved and inspired by the responses we saw. Globally, we felt connected to one another, knowing that wherever we were, however far from one another, we were doing the same thing on the same day, together.
