The series Capture the Flag questions how physical representations of a symbol can change what that symbol signifies. Symbols are not static- they change according to their context. The U.S. flag is meant to represent the best parts of our nation, but what would it look like if this powerful symbol was altered to represent other, more complex and salient features of our nation? Features such as our deep social and political divisions, our resilience, our distress, our fear, and ultimately, our ability to change.
