Wishing Well

(Wishing) Well is a garden well built of natural stone in a darkened space, which the observer can look down into.

From the depths of the well a video picture floats up accompanied by the voice of a child. The atmophere is imploring, intimate and bewildering. It draws the observer into a maelstrom of thoughts and questions about interpersonal relationships, about unfamiliar forms communication, even about one's own childhood, when, instead of a mirror image, the picture of a child is reflected up by the water.
