FLAG PROJECT

Participation, a nice word.
The goal of this project is to put the individual in general, and the inhabitants of a town, on the foreground. Long speeches use big words, but it can also be expressed in a more subtle and direct way. The visualization of one’s name reflects on the individual’s pride, because it expresses a certain acknowledgement of the person itself

Everywhere people can be seen that are looking for their name. The names are arranged from old to young and at the end a free space is provided for newcomers to add their names as well. Deceased individuals remain on the flag.

The flags are not a temporary occurrence. Annually, on the day of a local happening, a new version is being made. All versions are being preserved in the archive. This way, everybody is remembered.

For further information and questions, feel free to contact me.
