    This is no ordinary store: All of the products that line the shelves are just plastic bags. There are bottles of bags, cans of bags, boxes of bags, and, of course, bags of bags, each product an original design, made from discarded plastic stuffed inside other discarded plastic, creating an endless cacophony of packaging.

    At night this store comes to life with live performers, dynamic sets, hidden worlds and inventive puppetry to tell a darkly comedic, sometimes tender story that explores how the plastic refuse we are leaving behind might be misinterpreted by future generations. Plastic Bag Store is a tragicomic ode to the foreverness of plastic.

    The Plastic Bag Store installation will be free and open to the public from September 14-23 (closed on September 17).
