The Air Bear is a kitsch cool creation of New York artist, Josh Allen Harris, who upcycles plastic bags into a living, breathing street zoo. American Beauty meets David Attenborough with these weirdly beautiful creatures which are created from plastic bags that sit on the vents above the subway and inflate with the rush of air as the train goes past.
