This project began with a simple interest in an object of curiosity: a flag that’s been whitewashed as a result of being planted on the Moon. Though, a white flag unavoidably serves as a symbol of truce, ceasefire, and surrender. By the time this piece was being physically made, crisis became essentially status quo in America, and so, it felt like a great time to embrace the accidental yet uncanny conjuring of such a symbol. Sometimes, ceasefire is the best way to achieve peace and unity for us here human beings on Earth, and letting go of that which no longer works well is courageous and powerful.
