The Brief

An on-going assignment providing large scale decorations for the Japan Society annual festival. These must capable of being installed within a couple of hours, easily dismantled and stored for future events.

The Execution

Tsuru or peace cranes, important symbols in Japanese culture were fabricated from 2m – 3m sheets of seamless paper. In the folding process a wire harness was inserted into the model that is invisible to the viewer but enables the finished bird to be safely suspended above the festival arena.

A costumed character with the costume constructed out of one thousand cranes folded from 15cm squares of paper.

For the recent 60th celebrations a replica of Hokusai’s famous pen and ink drawing of “The Magician” was built in 3D using a fibre glass mannequin and a number of crane mobiles.
