30 Endangered Species - In Pieces

In Pieces is an interactive exhibition turned study into 30 of the world's most interesting but unfortunately endangered species--their survivals laying literally, in pieces.

Each species has a common struggle and is represented by one of 30 pieces which come together to form one another. The collection is a celebration of genetic diversity and an attempting reminder of the beauty we are on the verge of losing as every moment passes.

Take for example the Kakapo, an animal which evolved without natural predators and thus didn’t require instincts to defend itself. Unfortunately — and as is the case with most of the species showcased here — humans began easily hunting upon encroaching their range, then introduced the stoat and other forms of pest control for other species.

When you dig into a lot of research around this topic, it’s not long before you see the real darkness that is going on. Millions of years of evolution has occurred and humans are in danger of ruining it through desperation for financial gain or greed.

In Pieces hopes to educate and inspire, and provoke thought on this complex and intricate topic.
