About the project

Everyone can fold paper crane; it is small and takes only a few minute of their time…but we collected more than three thousand of them! Can you imagine how beautiful and powerful decoration will be on the Children’s hospital walls with 3000 paper cranes together? We are sure it will brighten up the hospital wall.

Visit the origami art exhibition at level 1 Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. 22 Sept - 25 Nov 2011

"....Mayu and I started working on the project in January this year. Since then I carried origami paper in my bag everywhere and asked people to fold paper cranes in many occasions. We ran more than 20 workshops in many different places.

We have met countless wonderful origami lovers. It was always a pleasure to see the big smiles on people’s faces who made paper cranes for their first time.

We believe that everyone can fold a paper crane – it is small and takes only a few minutes of their time, but 3000 of them together on the wall become a beautiful and a very powerful decoration.

Mayu and I would like to thank our families, friends, people from Louis Vuitton, Sydney Children’s Hospital, the Hospital School, the Hospital Foudation, and everyone who contributed their time and folded paper cranes for the project.

Big and special thanks to Roxanne and Martha for their endless support. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you." - Midori Furze, the opening night speech.
