Call for Participation

A collaborative / participatory art project for the internet
- a continuously growing animation with many authors:
The flags of every nation in the world will transform
into each another in a flash animation.


Basis for the visual realisation of the flag transformations:
1. The symbols displayed on the flags and their meanings;
2. The relationships between countries - historical, cultural, political, religious, economic.

Whereas most flags have predominantly simple geometric forms, in the transformation phase irregular, amorphous, organic and symbolic shapes can emerge (and disappear again). The aim is therefore not only to transform and disrupt the visual composition but also to add shapes and figures to it which express some connection to the country of the next flag. - Based on this concept, I would like to invite any interested parties from as many countries as possible to develop and design a scene for the animation: the transformation from one flag into another.
