An ongoing series of public art events where the audience is invited to work together to make a large paper crane from a 9ft (2.7m) square sheet of heavy paper.

Each completed crane will have a wingspan of about 8ft (2.5m).

Cranes will be installed at locations around the world.

Paper is cut from a 107in (2.7m) wide roll of ‘seamless’ photo studio backdrop paper, trimmed into a square.
