During my We Can Be Heroes installation for the Brixton Design Trail I collected close to 1000 pieces of origami made by the people that contributed to the piece.
Each piece contains an anonymous hand written message to someone they consider to be a hero. The messages range from heartwarming to heartbreaking and really lift a lid on the things that people wish they could say to people's faces, but quite often don't
I'm currently in the testing phase of making a book that pulls together some of the most extraordinarily touching and sometimes sublimely simple pieces from this installation.
