Event Details

I created the Memorial Crane Project as a way to honor the victims of the Coronavirus. I started folding Origami Cranes in May of 2020 to help me process and contemplate the volume of the Souls we were losing from the Pandemic. On May 14, 2020 the number ticked up to 88,000 deaths. It shocked me and I did the math to figure out how long it would take me to fold a crane for each of these lost souls. It would have taken me approximately 24 years! I decided to invite people from my social media platforms to help me recognize and honor all these loved ones lost. In my art gallery, I created an installation of close to 7,500 cranes suspended from copper wires, creating a maze that would be walked through as the visitors commemorated those we have lost. Today as the numbers exceed 500,000 in the United States alone, I have received over 80,000 Cranes. 19,500 names and numerous stories as well. My intention in this installation is to display these cranes along with a list of names on a “Wall of Remembrance.” Viewers can scan a QR code to hear the beautiful precious memories of those loved ones lost, told by those left behind. My goal is to eventually create Memorial Crane Project installations in each US state to mourn and heal collectively as a Nation united in Love, Respect and Spirit.
