Candy Chang

Through the activation of public spaces around the world, artist Candy Chang examines the dynamics between society and the psyche, the threshold between isolation and community, and the ways shared places can cultivate reflection, perspective, and kinship. She is interested in the relationship between public space and mental health, the tension between individual liberty and social cohesion, and a city that exposes and fosters the complexity of the individual and collective psyche. She is a TED Senior Fellow, an Urban Innovation Fellow, and a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader.
