Now is the time to make grand impacts. All of us, in a positive way. Imparting a message onto the earth that we know and we care and that we want our children and the children of our children to see the world in the beautiful sense that we can.

A collection of origami works by Takayuki Hori, these translucent, skeletal forms were created to highlight the environmental threat of pollution on bird species along Japan's coast. Given the devastation and the nuclear waste released into the ocean at necessity these are unbelievably haunting.

Each sheet of paper is printed with the images of an animals skeleton, including ingested human-made objects and then assembled into a 3D model. Set atop light boxes, the exhibition tells a sad ecological story that has only just been made sadder.
