As part of the European Capital of Culture exhibition, artist Candy Chang created a participatory public art project in Turku, Finland that invites people to reflect on the arc of their career aspirations. Located on a university path nicknamed Uraputki, or “Career Path,” the installation features prompts in English, Finnish, and Swedish that ask passersby what they wanted to be when they were a child and what they want to be today. The project transformed a neglected space into a constructive one for students to reflect on their childhood dreams, how they’ve changed or stayed the same, and how this perspective might inform their current lives. Responses included: “When I was little I wanted to be a princess. Today I want to be an electrician.” “When I was little I wanted to be a bird. Today I want to be a speech therapist.” “When I was little I wanted to be a minister. Today I want to be a rock god.” Commissioned by Flux Aura and Artist as Neighbor.
