Tiny Cranes

Stacie Tamaki's avatar Stacie Tamaki

Is the dew drop less beautiful than the waterfall? I hope my art will inspire viewers to take a moment and notice the delicate beauty of the world around us. It's there, we just need to see it. Equally easy to overlook are tiny gestures of kindness. Will seeing 4000 tiny cranes help people to realize that small can be significant? Add enough small things together and they'll create a whole greater than the sum of its parts. With cranes one can create art. With tiny gestures of kindness one can create a life well lived. There is no secret to folding an origami crane. When viewing my work if I hear people say "I could never do that." I take a piece of paper and show them they are capable of more than they realize. The expression of astonishment on their face minutes later when they look down in awe at the crane they just made is priceless. And what I believe to be the most crucial element of the human psyche is reborn. . . Imagination. For with imagination, all things are possible.
