The Bag, 2018

The Bag, 2018

“The thing is about it, when it’s pissing down, you’ve got 2 black plastic bags, what you can do you can cut a hole for your head in one end, and that goes over your head and you drag that down.  Then with the other plastic bag you can actually form like a hat, so the rain doesn’t run down your neck.”

In this video a man describes the usefulness of a black plastic bag when he was homeless.

Our heartfelt thanks to the donor of this object, who remains anonymous. This film was directed by Dorothy Allen-Pickard, the Creative Directors were Tony McBride and Jess and Matt Turtle. The object story was performed by Ben Smithies. The object photography was by Steve Brown, 2018.
