If you are an avid environmentalist, you may be familiar with the saying that rainforests are the “lungs of the world,” an essentially true statement because they absorb carbon dioxide and provide a huge amount of clean oxygen for the rest of us to enjoy.

Artist Julie K. Dodd wants to emphasize the importance of this life source and to educate people on the dangers of raised carbon dioxide levels due to human consumption. She has created a series of over 80 paper sculptures that symbolize miniature canopies. She compares these canopies to the lungs in order to get across the point that we need to protect the rainforests.

Through her project, Julie Dodd expresses the “lungs of the world” as vital arteries we couldn’t live without.
