Ascension by: Crimson Collective from: Los Angeles, CA year: 2017
In the Japanese culture the Crane is seen as a symbol of peace, luck, prosperity and health. It is believed that if you fold a thousand origami cranes, the universe will grant you a wish. We chose to build a giant crane (Coco) in the style and tradition of origami; so wherever it went it would bring with it the spirit and the energy of peace and wellness.
Ascension (Coco), is a 150 ft wide and 45 ft tall giant white origami crane made of aluminum truss, white fabric, and tension wire. The aluminum structure is modular, making the crane a temporary installation, but completely mobile. The 100+ components and over 7000 sf of 80% mesh texilene sunshade material, that make up the crane, can be dismantled and shipped in one 40 ft shipping container.
