For an assignment in my experimental photography class, I decided to incorporate Sadako's story about how 1000 cranes could grant anyone a wish - hers was to survive. Read her story here. I asked many of my family and friends to fold cranes and I reached 1300 cranes. I decided to create a large crane using all 1000 cranes that I received and projected images of people who were near and dear to their hearts - some are fighting or have fought through cancer, or through hard times and US soldiers were also included. Unfortunately I was not able to take a picture of the entire project in the dark, but it was a "magical piece" as quoted from my professor when shown with the lights off. [slideshow]
