We may be a bit biased, but the news of Yoko Ono collaborating with Occupy With Art (formerly the Occupenial) makes us cringe slightly. Lending her incredible celebrity to the movement is fantastic, of course, but what’s this here? Some sort of business cards? Oh no, right, this is a re-imaging of her 1981 Wish Tree project — trees strung with good wishes, strung following the assassination of John Lennon (the same year she put the bloody glasses he was shot in on the cover her of her music album.) Unlike noise pop, Yoko Ono did not invent the Wish Tree. It’s a very old thing. And so:

“In accordance with the raid of Zuccotti Park, and its subsequent closure, and the ubiquitous nature of the Occupy movement, Ono has broadened the project. So now instead of literally placing wishes in the trees, she has made a postcard edition of 10,000 with written instructions to be distributed nationally by Occupy Wall Street groups.”

Above are said instructions. Very sweet. Very short. Very autographed. Come get one at Liberty Plaza in Lower Manhattan on Saturday, January 14, 2011 at 1PM. (Image/story: Hyperallergic)
