Walking alone on a windy day, my eye fixates on a single plastic grocery bag fluttering above the street. I realize I'm having a moment parallel with that scene in American Beauty where the bag gets caught in a wind tunnel, swirling about in the air with a pile of leaves, like "a little kid begging me to play with it." NY-based Josh Blackwell also sees the beauty in these everyday mass-produced disposable objects, using the bags as canvases to apply delicate embroidery in simple patterns. Like a wise someone once said, "one man's trash is another man's treasure." I want to not only admire these creations in person, but would love to have one to carry around myself!
