'The Rise of The Fall' installation may seem like it was involved in a 'Case of the Serial Litterer,' but it is in fact the work of artist Miha Artnak. This art installation involves a slew of plastic bags secured to the branches of a lone tree, almost masking it from view when spied from afar. Like Artnak's past work centered around plastic bags, The Rise of The Fall installation hopes to bring further awareness to both human waste and consumer culture.

This particular installation also brings attention to the consequential suffering of nature at the hands of human greed and neglect. If left unchecked, it will be more than just this tree that will be covered by plastic bags.
