My installation will be a structure of wishbones held together to surround the tree on my site. It's wishbone components will be fragile enough to break and the user will make a wish upon breaking it.

we make our wishes and we break them...

Due to the financial situation around the world this temporary installation will act as a metaphor, showing the fragility of the stock exchange and the frailty of the people who were affected by it. In times like these we wish and hope more than ever, and with every wish the user will break a piece of my installation till it completely crumbles to the ground. The unreachable parts will be held high as a reminder of the structure's existence.
