One spectacular way to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year would be to post two giant digital origami tigers outside of your doors. Yet this installation does more than ring in the new year, it also serves to bring much needed awareness to the endangered status of tigers.

Commissioned by the Custom House in Sydney, Australia, the giant digital origami tigers mimic traditional Chinese lantern practises. Designed by LAVA, they are beautifully impressive, don’t you think? If not, I suggest you take one more glance at the gallery.
