[artinfo] FLAG METAMORPHOSES - Call for participation / submission

Tue Jan 10 17:15:05 CET 2006



Deadline: March 8, 2006, and ongoing


Continuously growing and animated by as many participating
artists from across the globe as possible, the flags of all nations
in the world are morphed into each other through flash animation.

Using digital media, we can make the symbols dance: Between each
two flags, scenes will appear that show an aspect of the relations
between the two countries. This is an exploration into the meaning
of imagery on flags, aiming to create interrelated associations
through questioning, reassessing, fluidizing and re-mixing of
diverse national iconography.

Flash, please visit: www.thyes.com/flag-metamorphoses
