‘Bag of Bags’ was made in July 2006 in collaboration with The Ballymun Axis Community Centre and Darklight Film Festival.

Since the introduction of the plastic bag levy, the tax earnings have risen from 12 million euro in the first year to 17.5 million in 2005. Profit suggests an increase, so where have all these bags? A team of ten set out in search of these bags by knocking on hundreds of doors in Ballymun to ask the occupants ‘Can we have a mooch under your sink?’

Thousands of bags were collected and then re-entered the recycling cycle as they were handed out in the Tesco carpark to people doing a big shop who forgot to bring their bags. This project was made by Dogmedia, funded by Axis and facilitated by Darklight.
