WISH: a public art project for the Belfast Festival at the Titanic Quarter by Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada.

After several years of planning, the portrait of an anonymous Belfast girl was plotted on a grid using GPS, set out with 30,000 hand placed stakes and created  over four weeks with over 3600 tonnes of soil, sand and rock.

Viewable in full only from the air, the piece – which will remain in place for the rest of the year – has already been nicknamed ‘The Face from Space’.
