The average life span of a plastic bag is a thousand years. The immensity of this installation - the sheer mass of this bag collection - encourages viewers to consider the implications of plastic consumption by viewing the amount of space in which three months of plastic bag consumption takes up. Artists Bethany Rose Puttkemery and Lee D’Angelo raise environmental questions through the construction of this plastic installation while also seeking to find beauty and new possibility from a material that this entirely problematic.

There will be an opening night tattoo performance by RAT666TAT. All of the funds collected will be donated to Unist’ot’en camp and tattoos will be by donation only.
