Description: A life-size torso of a person was constructed from wire and then wrapped in green plastic garbage bags used throughout the city by the council.  The torso was then fitted onto different garbage bin frames across the centre of Paris.  Members of the public interacted with the figure in various ways- holding hands, embracing, talking to it, or having their photos taken side-by-side.
