1000 Origami Cranes create ‘Light at the End of the Tunnel’ by Kirsty Ware

Light at the End of the Tunnel, by Leeds based artist Kirsty Ware, is a beautiful installation consisting of 1000 illuminated paper cranes that appear as if they gently fly through these darkened Town Hall prison tunnels which convey a peaceful atmosphere.

This piece was brought to life for the annual Light Night Leeds, a free multi-artform festival based off of Nuit Blanche, which takes place in Leeds city center. This festival hosts a wide range of installations, performances, tours and activities that aim to shed a new light on the city, encourage audience participation, make people think and see Leeds differently and to be entertaining, educational and/or and stimulating for visitors. Upon viewing the installation visitors could then make their own boats, cranes and other origami to either add or take home.
