This was the prophetic fortune I received at the exhibit.

The 300 gold cranes I folded for a special installation projecting shadows of fluttering cranes on the back wall.

the movement was caused by the air ducts in the ceiling.

It's kind of hard to see but theres a tiny crane folded from a 3mm piece of paper on top of that penny. there was a crane made out of a 2mm piece but it was lost at the exhibit.
