Lace Flags

 

For the Lillstreet Rooftop Flag Installation Project, I designed a series of four flags that pay 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, my work explores the idea of a flag as a dysfunctional object, documenting how they respond to the forces of the environment and whether they fly or drape delicately full of holes, while 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.
