For Those About to Snack, We Salute You

You probably know about Mark Napier's 'net.flag' for the Guggenheim, but did you know he also made another interactive flag for... the Altoids Mints promotional site? 'USA 1.1' is a collaboration between Napier and interactive audio guru Chris Burke. It's an American flag that quickly deteriorates into a surrealistic, pixelated symbol of U.S. consumerism. The more you click, the weirder it gets. Hamburgers, space burgers, chain link fences, rows of houses that look like milk cartons, and sardonic audio loops all figure into the mix. Well done. - Curt Cloninger
