The Plastic Bag Store
The Plastic Bag Store appears to be any New York City grocery or discount store, complete with signage outside and aisles stocked with colorfully packaged products inside. However, nothing is actually for sale here except packaging itself, packaging packed inside itself, where despondent cashiers with blank stares are endlessly double, triple and quadruple-bagging these products. This vibrant installation will be the context for a narrative, woven throughout the store, performed by multiple puppeteers, and actors with original music. The darkly comedic tale explores such questions as: How will our descendants interpret, and misinterpret, our plastic refuse left intact thousands of years from now? Where does the human spirit exist and thrive in a world of disposability?
