'Wish Happiness' was an interactive installation that featured at the 2018 Vivid Light Festival in the Royal Botanic Gardens at Sydney, Australia.
The concept was inspired by Tibetan Buddhist prayer wheels and meditation mandalas. The act of spinning the wheel playfully engages visitors in public rituals of generosity, contemplation and well-wishing.
