Folding to Happiness

Jasmina Dautović

Project description

According to an old Japanese legend, the one who folds 1000 origami cranes will receive a wish from the gods and be blessed with infinite happiness. Folding origami is all about mindfulness. The goal is not your own ambition to get the perfect fold, but to take your time to reflect and bring you a bit closer to satisfaction. In the photographic series “Folding to happiness” paper flowers are staged in a surrealistic way and show the beauty of origami in a new interpretation. As part of the project, volunteers were brought together to fold origami flowers. This experience not only strengthened the group’s sense of community, but created also an unforgettable experience.
