May Your Wish Come True
2018, Powder glass, wire, light.
Approx. 15cm x 7cm each leaf
This installation artwork consists of hundreds of delicately powder printed glass leaves hanging from the ceiling. Each leaf has a different person’s wish written on it, which is collected from anonymous people through the wish box I set up in a public space. The idea comes from the myths and the traditional custom from my origin country Japan. The leaf was often used as a device to deliver a person’s wish or prayer and connects the physical and spiritual world. The leaf itself is a physical manifestation of a person’s wish, whilst the reflected shadow of the wish on the wall is the alter bridge to where the fulfillment of the wish maybe answered from.
