If Wishes Were Houses...
Stumbled across some art this afternoon, small and curious models of houses placed along the waste land in front of Ocean Terminal.
Carefully made with mysterious quotes attached, it turns out that The House of Wishes are part of a larger art project by Spanish artist Tono Carbajo:
"Other detail will be added in the form of relational sculptural interventions outside of the gallery. Carbajo plans to create small houses using construction materials from old Barcelonian buildings. On these houses, he will write people’s wishes: wishes that can’t be bought with money. These small houses will be placed around the shopping mall, creating a contrast between the fragile structure and the imposing building of the shopping mall. They are part of a healing ritual: we express our wishes as the first step to having them fulfilled."
