Bryan James has created this (Species) in Pieces project, which is an online gallery highlighting the struggle of 30 endangered animals. As users select each animal it is animated from pieces, which come together to form a moving image. James says: “To communicate the fragmented survival of these species they are formed literally in 30 pieces as a set of shards morphing, flowing and bursting, to tell the stories in an engaging way. Each animal is represented by one numbered ‘piece’, the set uniting together to show their common struggle, explaining what it is that threatens their existence.” There is also secondary video content, written information, and there are statistics, desktop wallpapers and printed posters available.
