About the book
'The Wishing Ceremony' installation consisted of six brightly coloured booths.
The viewer was invited to step inside a booth and make a wish. Inside they found a selection of 'wishing tokens', hand-painted and intended to inspire wishes.
After looking at and handling the tokens, the viewer left a handwritten wish of their own, anonymously sticking it on the wall of the booth.
Over the course of the exhibition, the wishes built up, and were then recorded by the artist once the show closed, preserved as part of the artwork.
