Here is Cyd's multi-part piece which is a book composed of three origami triangle tip boxes which contain pictures of cute dogs and scrolls of historical texts that depict the cultural and political struggle between the Philippines and the United States. One of the texts is about the St. Louis World's Fair where they imported Filipino native Igorots and made them eat dogs to signify that they were indeed, savages.
