Artist: The Tangeneers
Negai is an interactive installation art piece that plays on the Japanese mythology that a thousand paper cranes will grant wishes and eternal luck.
Comprised of a multitude of hand folded paper cranes strung in an explorable formation, Negai invites you to share your experiences and hopes for Footscray’s future by adding messages on wish tags and attaching them to the structure.
The thousands of cranes on display will create a vessel to transmit to the universe the collective thoughts, hopes and wishes of residents of the nine suburbs that make up the City of Maribyrnong.
Created by multidisciplinary art duo, The Tangeneers, Negai aims to create curiosity, joy and community engagement in public spaces via interactive art.
Please note, due to predicted wet weather conditions this installation has moved from the Nicholson Mall into the MetroWest Shopping Centre. The shopping centre can be accessed from VU at MetroWest, Paisley and Albert Streets.
