Wishing Well (2012)


Wishing wells as artifacts are part of our cultural landscape, they challenge our capacity of imagination through a mechanism on which desire and wishful thinking become eminent as a human condition. Visitors have the main role in the poetic aspect and in the physical transformation of the piece as by making wishes, a vertical line of wish-strips emerges and eventually reaches the top of the space. The wish-strips are made of recycled vinyl hoarding material placed on the floor and it is intentional for it to erode and transform through the duration of the installation. The imaginary of the visitor is the core material of this installation, as post-consumer waste material is used to make it’s structure and making a wish demands giving them a new “poetic” life.
