White Flag Boundary Project

White Flag Boundary Project

description

”The small white lawn flags that served as a catalyst for this project are traditionally used to mark boundaries for moving land. I found this object of proposed changes to a landscape, the perfect stand-in for a symbol to explore how we use real natural boundaries to create abstract and political ones. The white flag is also often used to represent an effort to surrender. A willingness to accept an undesired fate was also on my mind as we come to terms with the realities of a shifting climate and continue to fight for sustainable systems. Approaching these ideas with a background in landscape painting, I am also interested in how our modern idea of landscape can be preserved or destroyed in the process.”
