As a child I read the Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. The titular character Sadako had been diagnosed
with leukemia from the radiation of the atomic bombing of hiroshima. Sadako's friend had told her to fold origami paper cranes in
hope of making a thousand of them. She was inspired to do so by the Japanese legend that one who created a thousand origami
cranes would be granted a wish. Her wish was simply to live.
This story has replayed through my mind for decades, slowly it began to blossom into a series of work
culminating in a font, animation and dress.
