Ono promised to collect all the Washington wishes and add them to her cache -- she claims to have more than 100,000 collected from trees throughout the world. The papers will be incorporated into the artist's Imagine Peace Tower, which will be installed later this year in Iceland. Ono was vague about the structure's exact design and said it would be made of light.

Both the Peace Tower and the tree project are part of the artist's long-standing efforts to encourage public participation in artmaking and to promote worldwide peace and understanding. Ono began creating art around 1960.
