During my recent time in New Orleans, I got to see in person the amazing piece by public installation artist Candy Chang called Before I Die, installed on the side of an abandoned house in the Marigny neighborhood. It invites passers by to fill in the blanks with what they’d like to do before they die. One of them read “live in New Orleans,” which I can definitely relate to.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
