Transfixing Trash

Get a load of these, Ricky Fitts. Inflatable trash bag animals. Air bears and such. It's cooler than it sounds. Joshua Allen Harris pieces together trash bags and ties them to subway grates to create lifelike billowing creatures. Believe you me (who has flashed innocent bystanders while getting off the bus), those grates generate a LOT of upward wind.

I bet Ricky Fitts would spontaneously combust at the sight of these suckers. "And this bag was just dancing with me, like a kid begging me to play with it.... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart is just going to cave in."

Thanks, Cheeta Fight. Quote c/o "American Beauty."
