Artist Corriette Schoenaerts flock of paper cranes illustrates that even the most simple of objects in multiples can result in surprisingly beautiful effect. Now get folding and find that reel of fishing wire!
Oh my god...what is up with this site?? I was just planning on starting an origami crane project this weekend!In my freshman year at UCSD, I folded 1000 cranes and hung them (in long strands) in a corner of my dorm room.I saw an article in this month's Domino mag about the "Origami/Folded Paper" trend and realized my old hanging paper crane fixture would be perfect for my loft--I have 20 foot high ceilings.And within a few days, you guys posted this story...very trippy....
hmm, yes, I definitely have an origami crane mobile I made in my teens...I think it's still in my childhood room, because my mom was kind enough to keep it there when she converted the room to a guest room. I used branches from our birch trees to anchor the cranes...very organic modern. I also hung cranes in my dorm room window, but they got kinda mashed when I moved.Also, meltendo, STOP STEALING MY LIFE. Heh. Go Tritons!
I've hung paper cranes in my room after reading this children's book (forgot the title). It looked awesome hanging over my bed until one day my cousin came over and accidentally wacked them with his baseball bat and dust flew all over my bedsheets. Hence I decided to take them down because dusting those birds regularly was just too much responsibility for a preteen to handle.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
