For the Lillstreet rooftop flag installation project, I am interested in presenting a flag that pays homage to textiles and the decorative arts, while bringing interior forms and objects into unfamiliar outdoor spaces.

By creating a lace-like flag full of holes, I would like to explore the idea of a flag as a dysfunctional object, documenting how it responds to the forces of the environment, whether it will fly or drape delicately full of holes, and looking at the ways in which people respond to subverted textile objects as they are taken out of context and placed in new and interesting spaces.



The original lace flag was made for a site specific installation entitled Flagpole (a meta-conversation) curated by Stuart Keeler and has since grown to include 4 new, individual flags made for the Lillstreet Arts Centre in Chicago, IL.
