How it started

IMG_7587

In August of 2013, I flew from Los Angeles to Berlin for the first time. As I boarded the plane the flight attendant handed me a copy of the days Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and on the front page was an image of a flock of birds flying over a large body of water and I took that as a good sign.

And for the next months I walked and danced through the streets distributing messages from a bird cage, that were folded like origami birds, reminding people that they could fly, that they, too, had wings, and were always free.
