When I was little I wanted to be…

Near the University of Turku is a pedestrian/bike path under the train tracks and highway. It’s nicknamed Uraputki, or “Career Path”, because it is a popular route that students take from their residences to the university. To remind students of the larger picture, this project transforms the path into an interactive space with fill-in-the-blank sentences stenciled on the pavement that say “When I was little I wanted to be ____. Today I want to be ____.” in Finnish, Swedish, and English. Passersby can use colored chalk to write directly on the pavement and reflect upon their larger life journey, as well as learn about the lives and goals of the people around them. Created with temporary spray chalk.
