Adelaide, Australia

In the weeks leading up to Easter, people walking past Trinity City church on North Terrace were chalking up their ideas, letting Adelaide know what they wanted to do before they died. The Before I Die cube in front of the church offered an interactive snapshot of the things that make life meaningful. Although some responses were crude, others were fascinating, honest, and extremely thoughtful. There were lofty achievements and ambitions to embrace life or forget life; some hinted at moral fear, others at peace. By far the most common longing was for human relationships. For the Trinity City church, the Before I Die project was a way to invite the public to contemplate issues of mortality and faith during the Easter season.

I want to create a legacy that will never be forgotten.

I want to make a difference.

I want to see the return of Jesus.

I want to see an end to gender inequality.

I want to love and be loved.

I want to fly to the moon.

I want to live without anxiety.

I want to end world hunger.

I want to see you again.

I want to find my soul mate.
