1000 cranes, 2015
paper, plexiglas cylinder of 12 cm diameter and 30 cm length, 2 mirrors of 12 cm diameter
This artwork is based on the Japanese proverb “A thousand cranes bring happiness”, which touches on an ancient legend of origami making. This thousand tiny cranes, made in a two-month time, were finally enclosed into an airtight cylinder, while two mirrors at the edges, create an imaginary infinite origami-cranes’ line.
