inDanger: a Taxigami Decaptych

Aerick Burton's avatar Aerick Burton

inDanger is a 10 piece Taxigami installation that centers around endangerment. This Taxigami decaptych seeks to raise awareness for, honor, & uplift the lives that have been threatened, endangered, and lost due to the actions (& inaction) of Us, the humans. We have the collective responsibility, as well as the collective ability, to support, protect, and uplift these lives and bring them out of vulnerability. This series will uplift 9 vulnerable lives and also will feature the life of a species lost to legend as a reminder of what could happen to any of these lives if We don't act accordingly. Although the first step is always awareness, awareness without action is not enough. So as I hope this series creates awareness and helps to evoke empathy within its audience, my biggest hope is that these pieces become a catalyst for action and create tangible support for these vulnerable lives. Because if we aren’t actively helping the vulnerable survive, we are inactively aiding their demise.
