Colorful origami is popping up in unexpected urban places in Hong Kong and Vietnam this summer compliments of French paper artist Mademoiselle Maurice. Not just for fun, Mademoiselle Maurice places the installations to convey a deeper message.
She says about her work, “The origami crane became an international symbol of peace. It’s also a tribute for all the victims of the violent actions in our world. We can see an human solidarity network thought of the accumulation of all the papers. Sometimes, I like to imagine when I am folding that all the origamis are like people, and I imagine some imaginary positive connection between this humans. Therefore, every origami represents in a simplify way some natural elements, in a graphic way, like flowers or birds.”
Hundreds of paper cranes in all different bright colors arranged into urban (and unexpected) masterpieces. So gorgeous!
