What if humanity’s primary inven­tions were not the Hero’s spear but rather a basket of wild oats, a medicine bundle, a story. Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1986 essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction presents a feminist story of technology that centres on the collective sustenance of life, and reimagines the carrier bag as a tool for telling strangely realistic fictions. New writings and images respond to Le Guin’s narrative practice of world­making through gathering and holding.
