I Wish Your Wish

Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is featuring a distinctly beautiful installation by an artist named Rivane Neuenschwander called "I Wish Your Wish".  

That's Jenny-Jane standing in front of one of the three large walls covered in silk screened fabric ribbons.  Each ribbon contains a wish.  

The observer is invited to read the wishes written on the ribbons and to choose one that resonates with them.  You are then invited to write down your own wish on a small slip of paper, roll it up, and insert it into the empty hole remaining from where you took your ribbon.  Your wish will then be silk screened onto a new ribbon and added to the exhibit.  

Jenny-Jane picked a ribbon that said "I wish I could fly."

The one I added said "I wish my cancer never returns."
