Paper Bags.

“paper bags.” is a series of installations based on Lisa’s experience of homelessness. The three installations display aspects of her personal experience, as a set of events led to her storing all her belongings in paper bags. The presentation of her narrative reflects the importance of exposing individual experiences as opposed to viewing the homeless merely as numbers. These installations seek to encourage viewers to interact with the pieces in order to take action and fight the apathy and distance often associated with interacting with the homeless.
