Paris-based French artist Mademoiselle Maurice recently called upon hundreds of volunteers to help complete a pair of street art installations in Angers, France for the artaq 2013 festival. The colorful works along the Maine River and on the approach to the Montée St-Maurice Cathedral required more than 30,000 pieces of origami folded by school kids, senior citizens and other helpers.
