    When I first arrived in Seoul, had noticed that the waste disposal system here was completely user pays. Pre-paid local council issued garbage bags of varying sizes are avaiable from convenience stores everywhere. So when I was asked to make a work for SSamzie Gallery’s Think Green exhibition, thought it might be nice to propose a double use for these garbage bags.

    In Seoul, you have to pay (100 won) for your plastic grocery bags at the supermarket and some corner shops, so thought I might suggest that instead of getting one of those, is to buy a garbage bag and use it as a grocery bag temporarily. precycling, i guess.

    For the show, I made a limited edition print of the suggestion on the reverse side of actual council garbage bags.
