On Friday I went to Leeds to see an art installation by an old school friend. I've known Kirsty since I was eleven. We hadn't seen each other in over ten years, but what's a decade between friends? So Andy and I arrived just after lunch, and immediately launched into helping with last-minute preparations.
The installation itself consisted of one thousand origami cranes, each illuminated with an LED, and suspended from the roof of an old prison tunnel. Kirsty has blogged about the development of her idea, and the process of pitching it to the annual Leeds Light Night event, at Night of a Thousand Cranes. I'm so impressed with her dedication to making this happen (it's her first art exhibition) and with the enchanting end result. You get a surprising amount of light from 1,000 LEDs!
