A wishing well is a term from European folklore to describe wells where it was thought that any spoken wish would be granted. The idea that a wish would be granted came from the idea that water housed deities or had been placed there as a gift from the gods, since water was a source of life and often a scarce commodity. In this audiovisual installation the live twitter feed is used to grant a wish in virtual space. The viewer can interact with the installation by sending his tweet using a hashtag “wishingwell”. At the end, tweet shows up in projections floating around the installation.
