Desecho

Unidentifiable bag.
Disposable organism.
Dispensable.
Organic material.
Useless.
Garbage.

I am inside a black trash bag in the waste collection area of the Mexico City art fair, Zona Maco. The audience senses my concealed presence from the small movements that I make within the bag. A city garbage truck approaches to collect all of the trash bags in the area, including the bag within which I am concealed. The truck disappears, taking an unclear path away from the collection area. I recorded the route from inside the trash bag.
