Origami art sculpture

I came across this charming collection of origami cranes while on my way to meet some friends for lunch in the Tanjong Pagar area.

This installation piece is a ‘community effort’. Sometimes that sort of effort seems a ‘fail’ to me simply because it just looks horrid, and I suspect it’s actually just a low-cost way for some cheap, tightfisted space administrator to fill some space with ‘art‘ (as opposed to paying and supporting a working artist).

I like this one though because it’s cute. I imagine kids have fun going around the poles with delight under the colourful cranes, and it’s certainly ‘Instagram friendly’ because it’s pretty.
