Started in 2011, the flag project is a symbolic act. An attempt to break artificial borders created by nation states by deconstructing official flags and sewing the pieces back together in a giant quilt, the world nations flags as one.




When the project started (2011), under the influence of quaestions posed by contemporary insurgent movements seen around the globe (the 15-M in Spain, Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street), I decided to deconstruct national flags in an effort to re-imagine these symbols.

As of 2018, I decided that deconstructing the flags needed to be followed by sowing the flags’ fragments together, making a new flag. A giant quilt, an unified transnational flag. A poetic act, in a fractured world.
