Cheaper than Traditional Therapy, but There's No Couch

OK. I ADMIT IT! I AM IN LOVE WITH CANDY CHANG. I LOVE HER THINKING, HER CREATIVITY AND HER ART. You can love her too, and we'll have this gargantuan intellectual love fest with her. If you have never heard of Candy, let me introduce you.

Candy is a designer and artist who currently lives in Helsinki, where she develops strategic visions for Nokia. She has a background in architecture, graphic design and urban planning and combines these disciplines to make city information and communication tools more accessible and engaging. For such a young woman, her resume of accomplishments is impressive, to say the least.

Like this particular street art project Candy calls Sidewalk Psychiatry. Realizing that people walking along a city street are often engaged and immersed in their own thoughts about work issues, relationships, or last nights dinner, Candy set out with non-permanent chalk to prod people to focus on what may be bothering them. Her intent was that perhaps one of these questions would help someone find an answer, or seek professional help.
