Soaring overhead, these luminous cranes are a symbol of hope and healing. This breath-taking installation was inspired by lockdown, where animals roamed through urban areas, rather than existing on the periphery of our cities as a ghostly presence. The Ghosts use cranes as their model, as in Japanese culture the crane is a mystical creature representing good fortune and longevity.
