Once Upon a Plastic Bag,

an Anti-Plastic Bag Campaign in Kyrgyzstan

Through garbage bin street art and a plastic bag clean-up initiative called "Once Upon a Plastic Bag," I wanted to encourage people to seek a clean and comfortable country for their children. I wanted to raise awareness about the rampant garbage problem in Kyrgyzstan, I found that the ugly trash cans in the city can actually serve as a nice canvas to express my concern. I made a series of large photographs of the wide open human mouth and I placed them on the sides of the garbage cans around the city. So they would remind people that what they throw into the world, eventually ends up inside us.
