In everyday life we are constantly confronted with fixed structures and templates where we have to move within. In our society individuals surrender to the discipline of this abstract and repetituous forces that effectively govern their relations and choices. Designed as an open template, this flag represents the ultimate boundaries for this pseudo democratic spirit. The territory here is schizophrenic: open and democratic as well as forcing and totalitarian.
We salute you,
Cox & Grusenmeyer
P.S.: Along with the independent publishing fair ABOUT, the exhibition “FLAGS” showcased 16 different flags designs by various international designers.
