Takayuki Hori has created this stunning series entitled ‘Oritsunagumono’ (translated as ‘things folded and connected’) which is a collection of origami works designed to highlight the environmental threat of pollution to a number of species native to Japan’s coastal waterways.
Each translucent sheet is printed with fragments of an animal’s skeleton or pieces that could have been potentially ingested in these areas. They are then assembled, by the art of paper folding, into three-dimensional models. As you can see once the paper is folded upon itself it brings each of the fragments together, revealing the suffering of each animal in these polluted areas.
