Wish Mango Tree is a specific site/public intervention to be installed on the georeferenced mango trees from the city of Belém. The project is powered by the electronic labeling app and technological device and the creation of a hollow steel plate with the logo of the Mangueira Desejo project that will allow you to activate augmented reality, seeking a better location by application. And it will promote interaction between individuals: humans and mango trees. These wishes should be visible to whoever approaches the mango tree forming a virtual cloud of wishes around the tree. This installation project proposes the displacement of a project developed in a site specific, in Republica Square, in the city of Belém do Pará, north of Brazil. Moving physically, the device, installed in a tree/double, and shared data/desires simultaneously between Belém and the exhibition space.
