4 More Years - 1-20-05 - 1-20-09 - A Chronicle in Cranes|
New York Times Cranes
The crane is a symbol of longevity, good fortune and, more recently, of peace. I make an origami crane from the front page of the New York Times every day to mark the passage of a terrible time. My inspiration is Sadako Sasaki, a young Japanese girl who died from the "atomic sickness" after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
If they do nothing else, my cranes document “Four More Years, 1.20.05- 1.20.09” and create “A Chronicle in Cranes.”
