Based on Yoko Ono’s instructions “make a wish’, the intervention over the Main river follows the instructions, keeping the title word for word. The artist projected wishes of people from different places in the world onto the river. The texts were appearing and vanishing as time passed by. Wishes sources: wishes typed at the opening exhibition (May 31st 2005) and wishes sent by mail and collected.
"Make a wish. Write it down on a piece of paper.
Fold it and tie it around a branch of a wish tree.
Ask your friends to do the same.
Until the branches are covered with wishes."
