Wishing Wands

Artist: Wowhause (2009)

Wishing Wands evoke the childhood tradition of making a wish by blowing on a dandelion seed head. These interactive sculptures are designed to be accessible to children of all physical capabilities: each seed head features 38 2 1/2"" Austrian Crystals that catch the light, refracting sunlight in prismatic rainbows children can "catch" and play in. The three sculptures are sited near an accessible playground in a public park. Schoolchildren participated in making wishes on each of the crystals before they were incorporated into the sculptures.
