A declaration could be seen as part of the 'speech act'; that being, the naming of something to be true by using words which allude to a certain name. 

By claiming someone to 'be a good person' through the purchasing of this sticker, that must mean they are in fact a great person?

I mean, as also suggested, the money did go to a food bank... a charity?!? (It actually did!), Which proves they are, as their sticker says, a good person.

But what makes a good person? 

Well, by providing this name of goodwill in sticker form, with a plastic housing, I was hoping to allude to the pointlessness of its material form. A throwaway, thus temporary, illusion of morality- Or,

an ethical standpoint that's also as accessible as the commonplace plastic bag. This bag elevated to protector, providing ownership to what's inside- a suggestion aided by the nature of the stickers adorning the packaging.

Bagged Declarations aim to explore this absurd trusting in nature, playing with arrangements, and alluding to culture jamming in its scope.
