"BAGGED" is an ongoing project. My aim is to highlight the importance of being "present", especially in relationship. Constant feeling of apartness between people today, because of the modern technologies, way of life and communications, cause me feel a presence of invisible bubble, around each of us, which makes hard us to feel affinity and being involved in our mates life.
Frequently, a velocity of modern life doesn’t allow us to "being in present". A steady stream of thoughts, calls, messages, distracts us from what is happening right now, doesn’t allow us to enjoy and feel our lives. We communicate with people, but often we are not paying attention. Plastic Bag is symbolizing this alienation and boundaries between us.
A big amount of information, events and everyday problems gives us desire to run away gives us a feeling of feebleness. Sometimes we want to separate the world, to hide, to become blind for a time. We afraid of loneliness, but we desire loneliness. We are looking for the serenity in our rooms, beds, plastic bags.
Life is tough, is a challenge, a competition. We are afraid of being honest, honest with people around, with ourselves, with the World. We are keeping our thoughts and feelings deep inside, we are wearing a Pokerface kind of a plastic bag.
We can feel protected but we are going mad with keeping all our fears and desires inside. We feel we are gasping in our plastic bags.
New York city is the perfect place for to find or to loose our identity. Just don’t forget to take off sometimes your plastic bag.
