The Wish Machine

Turkey’s contribution to the biennale featuring projects from over thirty countries, presents ‘The Wish Machine’, a project designed by Autoban. Taking direct inspiration from the ‘wish-tree’ a cultural tradition deeply rooted in the ancient Anatolian faith; this interactive machine works by sending the papers on which visitors will write their wishes into an unknown destination, through a pneumatic system. Autoban has worked in an interdisciplinary and collective setting with different expertise for the installation that is custom designed for the biennale space: a century-long, well-known system with a surprising new form and function. — Organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV)
