One Thousand Cranes!

Anomaly and a group of Artists have created beautiful designs that can be made into origami cranes.
A donation to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund will allow you to download a design with instructions to guide you in making a crane. The site www.onethousandcranesforjapan.com are hoping many thousands of you will fold and then place your crane somewhere prominent so that it might inspire others to also focus their intent and devotion toward those in the grip of this tragedy.

Dot Collaboration!

Very cool “Join the Dots” project where each collaborator is given a template of a dot in a fixed position on an A2 portrait poster. Each interprets this in their own way. There are 25 so far, with the aim of getting 100.
See them all here.
