Like a school of fish, the Together We Are Greater art installation truly abides by its title. Made up of a swarm of origami boxes, 2,500 to be exact, which were solely crafted out of used, recycled and secondhand paper, it shows how visually powerful something can be when it takes on a communal aesthetic rather than a lone one. More than that, it also represents the strength communities have over the individual.

The Together We Are Greater art installation was created by British artist and designer Jacqui Symons. At its heart, it addresses the high amounts of paper that get wasted or thrown away every day. The organic, fluid form and rainbow gradient also encourages people think about the environment in such a way they will walk away with a desire to protect it.
