Flags Mistaken For Stars
Flags Mistaken For StarsOctober 2013: Eric Wall and Erin Minckley Chlaghmo “Flags Mistaken for Stars” Artist Statement: Both optical and vibrant, these five triangular flags aim to reflect light from the city in the night sky and create a dialogue with the viewer during the day. The triangular shapes represent the rays of a traditional five pointed star, or druze. Color variation and printed patterns adorn each flag, making them distinct while simultaneously communicating with their companion flags through a common visual language.  Like the flags, the artists are communicating over vast distances to create this project.  While four of our flags fly in Chicago where Chlaghmo currently resides, the fifth flag while be displayed in Copenhagen, Denmark, where Wall is currently based. Similarly, the five flags are also communicating from afar the way the stars in the night sky project to us on Earth. ericwall.org / erinchlaghmo.com
