    Ah, yes! I feel like I’ve been waiting my whole life for someone to use garbage bags this way.

      LOL

      Seriously though, I hope there was some purpose other than “artistic merit” in using the garbage bags for this. Like maybe they could have used it to send the message across to stop littering the ocean, or save the whales, or campaign for marine life, etc etc.

      Just saying.

        If they did, it would be a rare case of sending a message through art that is actually pretty cool. If they didn’t, the fun factor alone does it for me!

        I’ll agree with AM on this. Anyone can make a whale out of garbage bags, using only the smallest amount of energy and a little bit of thought.

    Joshua allen did this in NYC… But he used the subway air vents to inflate them… Google his name to see some amazing video of it
