Nuit Blanche 2010

Last October we set out to Toronto in the drizzling rain with one-thousand paper cranes in tow. The curtains of origami birds were our guerrilla contribution to Toronto's Nuit Blanche and recieved some attention in the November issue of Incite Magazine. Every bird was hand made and hand sewn into lines of its fellows. We carried the bunch to Toronto in several large IKEA bags and crossed our fingers that it wouldn't start pouring rain until we were done with our project.  'One-thousand paper cranes' is a legend that far predates our attempt, but our aim in carrying out the task wasn't the wish that is granted to those who succeed.  Standing in the midst of some twelve-thousand individual folds of paper is an experience; one that we wished to share.
