Bottom of the Bag, 2008
(In collaboration with: Jade Townsend )
Reclaimed materials from photo shoot sets, steel, found sofa, top soil
Approx. 20’ x 20’ x 25’

Bottom of the Bag is created out of recycled set materials from photo shoots and found objects; the artists have created an illusionary exterior environment that seeks to challenge the viewer to perceive dichotomies such as reality and non-reality, comfort and apathy. They have positioned a used couch that was found, on top of a steel ladder. The buildings are tilting and buried in trenches, creating the feeling of a sinking ship.
