‘Oritsunagumono’ (translated as ‘things folded and connected’) is a collection of origami works by Japanese Visual Communication student Takayuki Hori.
Each translucent sheet is printed with the images of skeletons of eight endangered species or, on some pages, human-made discarded objects that are often ingested by the animals in the wild.
Using the ancient tradition of folded paper, Hori assembles the pages into a three-dimensional model.
