Spirit Boats

I'm just sharing a photo of a "Spirit Boat" project I did. I made origami boats out of paper, scrim, tea and coffee paper, bones, moss, lichen and other natural materials and launched them on a river as a sort of ritual offering. I repeated the ritual on 30th November - Remembrance Day for Lost Species - to highlight the extinction of species.

Anyway I wrote a blog post about the initial project:
