Packing the Nature – Works by Ng Man Wai
Plastic bags are industrial products, the use of artificial colors shows a tendency of anti-nature, which is opposite to the natural colors. For the artist’s creation, she uses multi-colors as a simile to show the colors are like the constructions that built by humans for their better lives. However, those constructions must harm and change the environment.
The plastic bags of the installation
