The Healing Project
The Healing Project is an interactive installation consisting of two
8' towers representing our pre and post September 11th memories of
the World Trade Center. Participants, including anyone viewing the
sculpture, are invited to contribute origami cranes and swans which
will be suspended from a clear platform resting atop the towers. The
piece is complete when the towers have been completely draped in
these birds of hope, healing, and strength. The birds will then be
given to NYC as a symbol of solidarity and sympathy.
The Healing Project will be installed at the Oakland Museum beginning
October 19th to coincide with their Day of the Dead exhibit. Origami
paper and instructors will be provided on October 21st to encourage
The core collection of 6,000 origami birds will be at Strawberry
Fields, Central Park, NYC, the day before and the day after
Thanksgiving 2001, along with origami instructors and paper.
