鳥 [tori; bird] | In collaboration with Jenn Ha-Trang Nguyen, Erica Seguin & Pa Kim.
鶴 [tsuru; crane] is a type of 鳥 [tori] bird that symbolizes longevity and good fortune as they are believed to live a thousand years. There is a story of Sadako Sasaki, a child that developed leukemia from radiation exposure from the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. She decided to fold 1000 paper cranes as a symbol of hope & peace but only managed to fold 644 before dying. Today, the tradition of folding 1000 origami cranes is a prayer for health & happiness.
