Inspired by Walmart's slogan Always, this work is part of a series of bag/flags that propose consumerism as a defining quality of the American national identity. The ubiquitous plastic shopping bag is an icon of single-use disposability, but Always is a promise of forever- Rome's democracy lasted 500 years; The United States has existed half as long; But the plastic bag will endure for millennia.
