Plastic Bags Blow...and Illuminate!
My malevolence for the plastic bag was temporarily immobilized today while being delighted by the art group Luzinterruptus' celebration of the vessel, with an "impromptu garden of light," installed near The Prado Museum. The installation, called “A Cloud of Bags Visit the Prado” was illuminated for a period of about 4 hours and included roughly 80 recycled baggies, which were inflated with the aid of the wind.
Our Take: Who knew plastic bags could be something beautiful? We’re seeing a growing number of artists using the object of our ugly addiction to raise awareness about over-consumption.
