About the Item
"Wish tree" is an online space where you can listen to the voices of other people and their desires, and maybe remember your own. Anyone can contribute to the project with their voice. For this you need to record your desire and send the audio to the email firstname.lastname@example.org. The space and appearance of the tree will change and in the next update, when there are even more voices, the artist will replace the white ribbons with flowers. The more desires appear, the more tree will blossom.
Maria Saakyan: "For me, this project is about observing my reaction to desires, voices, and intonations of other people. About accepting the desires of a different person".
