Flapping in the Breeze
Wendy Kwan
fiber based silver gelatin
edition of 6

At first glance I believed this waving object to be a shirt – it took a while for me to see it was just a plastic bag! Flapping high in one of the elegant old trees on site, it appeared on a mid winter day. I wonder who took the trouble to rig it – and what their intended message was. For me it seemed a sad and lonely site, symbolic of loose ends and uncertain plans.
