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.
