  • Abstract: “The Wishing Tree” is a sort of multimedia sensorial installations made in artistic workshops that have proposed anti-consumerism thought and practice by a mix of recycling assemblage, handcraft, visual art, interactive music and technological artistic experiences. They are initially aimed at art educators and elementary and high school students and promote, from the integration of different means of expression, the integration between the visual arts, the audiovisual and digital/sensorial systems. This article evidences some aspects of these procedural art series, such as critical protagonism, agency, pro-activism and other ethical and cognitive additions in the courses of these international workshops-installations held between 2012 and 2019.
