All those bags.

'All those bags' is a social experiment in facilitating local sharing. It is a system for public to give-away, take and re-use spare carrier bags. Design process borrows ideas from design activism and active research - hands-on experimenting in the real-world. Nearly 40 bag dispensers were installed around different locations in East London over a time period of three months, some of them still being up and used today.

The installation is part of a research project that explores design interventions to manage waste and resources in urban landscapes. To meet challenges of creating sustainable livelihoods in expanding cities we need a shift towards more circular material flows.
