44' x 32' x 12', painted tracing paper, drypoint on gampi, glue, string
Viewers enter this installation under a vaulted ceiling structure that is like an inverted honeycomb. Drypoint images hang from the walls. Visitors participate by inflating flat paper boxes with exhaled breath, inserting a written wish, and tying these to the ends of a strings hanging from the ceiling. Over the course of the exhibition, there is an accumulation of boxes in and around the golden canopy.
