Bin Bag Bear

Raw Edges Studio

5 October 2006


A council bin-man had a peculiar imagination: he could see teddy bears in every object he observed. No one at work could stand his excited cries every time he shouted, “look at that bear…look at that one… don’t throw it into the garbage crusher… nooooo!” Of course he was fired from his job, and lost his family and friends. Yet even though many people thought he was strange, none of them would admit that they too saw the teddy bear bin bags dumped around the streets of London.
