"Plastic bags are the second most common form of litter
in the world after cigarette butts.
They symbolize the ambiguous nature of capitalism,
with its great abundance and great squalor.
Equally fascinated and repulsed by these objects,
Josh began embroidering plastic bags in 2004.
Initially raiding kitchen cupboards and utility closets,
he started collecting plastic bags with the intention
of rendering the bags harmless by sewing them shut.
Sewing the two sides of the bag together
denies its function while revealing its essential necessity."
