What is the life expectancy of a plastic bag?

The journey of a plastic bag extends far beyond its trip from the grocery store. Once thrown away, straying across the planet, this is where its real life begins; its autonomous life. Little anonymous plastic bag amongst the world’s countless little plastic bags, on its way to a rot-proof eternity. What if we humans, so firmly anchored to the ground, could escape the pull of gravity and fly with the wind, free at last, carried along by the arbitrary waltz of the air?

A performance without words, featuring the manipulation of objects and elements, L’après-midi d’un foehn – Version 1 (Afternoon of a Foehn) uses simple turbines to create a vortex. Manipulated by the flow of air, swirling and twirling, the little plastic bag characters dance to Claude Debussy’s most famous work, the timeless Afternoon of a Faun, itself inspired by Mallarmé’s poem of the same name.
