Sculpture

The sculpture consists of a human size bird cage on wheels with a brazier filled up with soil as a base . Over time the sculpture fills with wishes and on the night itself, all of the anonymous wishes are burnt within the sculpture, turning the piece into a huge beacon of light and hope. The spectators are asked to walk or run seven times in circles around the fire to increase the possibility of their wishes being realised. The fire slowly consumes all leaving the wishes and desires as ashes. Seeds are then spread onto the ashes, now with a new lease of life as a fertiliser. The plants that subsequently grow provide ‘answers’ to the wishes and overcome the enforced borders of the cage sculpture, literally swallowing the metal structure.
