Wish4[0] is based on a poetic interpretation of the maxim “Be Careful What You Wish For”. The title of the work is a truncation – and linguistic reworking – of the idea of wish fulfilment in the digital age, one where willing users and audience members are subjected to an “always-on” news cycle, where social media and content streaming are the preferred method of information sourcing and privacy is an elastic concept. One of my intentions in creating Wish4[0] is to explore the pull of a user’s desire to be continually digitally connected. This project takes as its inspiration this perpetual tugging at a user’s consciousness by the digital: each day, for 40 days, I’m creating and posting a creative response that will take as its immediate inspiration a headline – or item - drawn from the electronic news cycle of that specific day.
