I designed these shopping bags as a final piece for my thesis in which it added a new dimension to the shopping bags that I had made. These baskets are made from chicken wire to highlight the link between captivity and human trafficking. This idea is also illuminated by the tie wraps that act as a shopping tag. Each of the baskets focus on a unique country that is guilty of enslaving people to produce American branded products. In this way, people are wired into the basket in which they are seemingly in a cell. Meanwhile, the baskets hold their own origami objects with facts of several unscrupulous American brands.

These baskets are currently on display and for sale in the Exhale Unlimited Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles.
