Blue Plastic Bag

Ross Taylor and Madalina Zaharia worked with independent supermarkets in Archway to create Blue Plastic Bag for Windows. They created three consecutive installations each made in response to a specific local business. Huge billboard posters mimicked and interpreted shop identities and stories, a spinning timber counter became the focus of social transactions acting as a viewing pod for their documentary film and in its reversed state as a stage for talks and performances, and fluorescent animations of found marketing slogans floated in the windows. A walking tour of Archway supermarkets, incorporated a live rendition of The Jams Man in the corner shop and the sharing of a cows foot soup recipe.
