Words can Fly! 1,000 Miles!!


This awe-inspiring 3D poster is completely made out of paper, and it bears a single line of hope as it’s name: “Words Can Fly A Thousand Miles.” Made by artists Kyosuke Nishida, Brian Li, and Dominic Liu, the poster is a reminder of the aftermath of the earthquake in Japan this past year, when messages, tweets, and emails poured in from around the world as a means of support for the Japanese people. This project gathered together hand-written messages of hope, along with donations, to aid the people who are still recovering from both the earthquake and the resulting nuclear crisis in Fukushima.

The project was also inspired by the famed Japanese tradition of folding one thousand origami cranes to fulfill someone’s wish. The crisp lines and pristine folds of the type give way into a series of colorful birds that erupt from the end of the sentence; I’m particularly fond of the pale, colored shadows that seem to hover under each bird.
