1000 DSM Origami Cranes

The Japanese origami crane is a symbol of peace. The legend of the 1000 cranes says that
anyone who folds 1000 cranes will be granted a wish such as recovery from an illness.
During each show of the altered books “They say she is bipolar and he’s got OCD”
I teach the public how to fold origami cranes out of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual
of Mental Disorders (DSM) pages. It is gesture of compassion and engagement. When
all pages of the DSM are folded and the cranes made into a garland its content will have
been transformed.
