Floating the Flag of Unity

This installation "Flying the Flag" was created to unite different areas of Germany. A matrix of semi-impact air motion modules allows the work to wander and "flow weightlessly over the country without being fixed to a pole" or any specific geographical location (Graft, 2009). The work dances "over places of memory, marking the felicity of the reunion all over germany" and follow celebrations of the reunification.
