Wish You Were Here is a site specific installation created for the event The City is Asleep and Dreaming which strove to develop a public dialogue about the transitioning identity of the city while reimagining what public space can be. Having recently moved back to Rochester, the city of my birth, I explored inner longings for the people and places that had disappeared during my absence. Using the idea of transmission I incorporated satellite dishes and tvs to convey a sense of desire for contact. The lilac is the city flower. Rochester rebranded itself from a flour to a flower city; I left to bloom and now return to send a message of the city's and my growth. This piece consisted of a window installation and paste ups that served as wayfinders for a treasure hunt which led to art installations around the city.
