1000 Cranes presented by Lakeside Joondalup
by Ambient & Co (Sydney)
1000 Cranes is inspired by an ancient Japanese legend: if a group of 1000 origami cranes (senbazuru in Japanese) are hung in a home they will act as a powerful and benevolent charm and bring good luck. Senbazuru came to symbolise hope in Japan through the actions of a young girl dying from the effects of the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. Sasaki Sadako began a senbazuru – but tragically, was unable to complete her task. However, after her death her classmates completed it in her honour. The creators of 1000 Cranes believe that the senbazuru legend has great significance in a world deeply affected by instability and negativity. As visitors move through the installation, 1000 hanging origami cranes light up bringing joy and hope to all. 1000 Cranes will be located inside Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City for the duration of the festival. So make sure you make the most of your visit and come early to shop, eat and play at Lakeside Joondalup.
