The Daily Crane*

*Wouldn’t that make a great newspaper name?

Journaling 2.0! At the beginning of 2015 (as a way to explore his self-termed “quarter-life crisis”), Cristian Marianciuc undertook a year-long project to make and photograph a new origami crane to describe every day.

“Each time I look at one of my cranes, I can remember at least one thing about the day in which it was made.”

It sounds like how I feel about my daily blog posts. When I go back and look at my old posts, I can nearly always remember what I was thinking about or where I was when I wrote it. If you check out Marianciuc’s Instagram, you can discover what each of his cranes means. Whether or not you’re interested in their meaning, they certainly are lovely to look at!

  1. One of our prettiest Christmas ornaments is an origami crane made out of gold and white brocade, with a tiny gold bell at its neck. I bought it in Japan.

  2. wowza! That is stunning! I am looking forward to following your blog. I think it is a great idea! I have just started “a photo aday” blog. To quote you “When I go back and look at my old posts, I can nearly always remember what I was thinking about or where I was when I wrote it.”
    I feel the same way when I look at my photos. Thanks for a great post. I have folded many a great here in Japan but these are works of art!

  4. Woah! These are exquisite! Having very little aptitude when it comes to origami, I am in awe of his skill, dexterity and imagination. I love the idea of having such a creative visual journal. Amazing.

  6. I love origami and once bought a origami-a-day calendar but I couldn’t keep up with that even. I can’t imagine doing something this delicate and creative every day.

  8. Love it. I have jars of cranes lying around. Folding them is one of my favourite things when I am stuck somewhere with nothing to do. Much better than TV.
    Cheers
