One Garden One Night One Wish

A site-specific audio installation by Chrysanne Stathacos and Andrew Zealley,  Nuit Blanche, Toronto, dusk to dawn, 2006.

Visitors were invited to attach printed wishes, from The Wish Machine Project, available on-site,to the branches and trunk of a maple tree – which emanates a sound score. This sound/wishing tree becomes a meditative focus as visitors leave their symbolic messages. The score is fully realized when accompanied by sounds intrinsic to the area: footsteps and murmurings of passers-by, traffic in the distance, the hum of the city and the still of the night.
