Paper Bags

I know I don’t often post items that are not related to Sander. However, this struck me as interesting this morning and I wanted to share. This artist does a very good job of demonstrating the level of our national consumerism. Certainly gave me pause to realize the volume of what “we” use. You can see more installations from this artist at http://www.chrisjordan.com.
