kite project

/ to fly a shopping bag /

The idea was originally Miwa's. Trash seems to have a life of its own always growing, gathering seemingly from nowhere, always in the most unexpected places, unless you live in New York I guess then you expect trash to be everywhere, one of those unavoidable companions to your life in a big dirty city.

We are trying to harness the power of trash.

When the wind is right the trash bag kites fly unexpectedly high.

I can't imagine what the view must be like up there. Trash has found a new high.
