Joshua Allen Harris’ Inflatable Bag Monsters are hip, cool, and urban! It’s public art that didn’t cost the tax payers a cent! I love that Harris thought to turn something as inanimate as a garbage bag into a “street happening”. I love that Harris used the exhaust of the subway – something usually associated with toxic poison – to breathe life into these creatures that become a reflection of the grittier side of urban living. It takes imagination and it takes vision to turn urban waste into something both innocently playful and disturbingly insightful.
