1,000 Cranes

1,000 Cranes
Newsprint
Edition of 100
18" x 24"
2001

One of the first prints pulled when I moved into 1026. In practicing vector illustrations and half-tone ratios, I came across an article on the tradition of Japanese school children folding 1,000 paper cranes in memorial of the Hiroshima Bombing. The schematics are a diagram of the FatMan and LittleBoy Bombs, and the halftone pattern is of the mushroom cloud.
