The Abstract Flag

IMG_9816Upon entering the American History Museum in Washington D.C. you are confronted with a 40 foot long flag. Known as “The Abstract Flag,” this piece hangs on the wall directly outside the room in which The Star Spangled Banner flag is displayed. The location of the work serves to inspire future endeavors. Consisting of 960 pixels of mirrored polycarbonate, “The Abstract Flag’s” metallic surface reflects light in a fashion to resemble movement, or the flag waving.
