THINGS FOLDED AND CONNECTED Takayuki Hori’s exhibition “Oritsunagumono” (which means “things folded and connected”) is intended as a critique of Japan’s polluted coastal waterways, which have nasty effects on the local fauna. The artist printed images of animal skeletons and discarded trash onto translucent sheets of paper, and then folded them into origami animal shapes. Hori folds each animal — both bones and trash — out of one uncut sheet of paper, so the meticulousness of his design stands as an even more subtle indictment of the pollution problem. Each translucent sheet is first printed with either the images of fragments of an animal’s skeleton, 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. Once the paper is folded, the printed components are united as a whole, telling the visual story of the animal’s plight to survive in an increasingly polluted and hazardous ecosystem.
