Naomi Chasse, a student in NYU's photography department, is making one thousand red paper cranes with quotes from the writing of Francesca Lia Block. Naomi has been handing the cranes out all over New York, asking people to upload pictures of them to her tumblr. We're loving the simple words of wisdom on each crane, and the immaginative pictures people have come up with.
