My friend Spacexula just sent in this AWESOME suggestion on how to display 1000 origami cranes in a durable pleasing way.1 2 I’m going to give you a link to his website and blog, but before you click, know that the top post on his site today is very NSFW.3 Spacexula suggests:
Cast all the cranes into a clear block of resin.
Can be picked up locally for around $20 a gallon.
If you suspend them all on fishing line stringers you could likely fit them all in a single concrete casting tube
I freaking LOVE this idea. The only thing I would need to test first is whether the resin would stick to the cardboard form creating a cloudy cardboard layer on the outside of the resin tower. That said, I love love love this idea and feel quite committed to it already.
