Our wishes are presentiments of the abilities that lie in us,
harbingers of what we
will be able to accomplish.

Johann Wolfgang v. Goethe

A Japanese legend says that whoever folds a thousand paper cranes will be granted a wish. What would be your wish?

I wish for all human beings to see themselves as part of one world with universal basic needs and shared wishes that connect us. That is why I am building a thousand luminous paper cranes sending them out into the world for everyone to see.

Whoever purchases a luminous crane can post its location and a wish on the world map above. Click on the map to find out the wishes of the current participants.

For more information on the project and how you can become One of a Thousand have a look at the following pages.
