GREEK MOOD FLAG - Intro

Throughout my work, I have been trying to reduce landscapes into the sparest constituent parts possible, so that ultimately, simply evoking a MOOD should put you right there. I am also a big fan of flags, and find it fascinating how a few blocks of colour can represent an entire nation. Somewhere in between the two ideas, I came up with the idea of a MOOD FLAG. In the modern world, people are more individualistic than ever. So why not declare yourself a 'territory'? And going further still, maybe a flag should represent your personality? So the idea is to create a 'snapshot', containing colours corresponding to your personality, background, and mood, capturing the essence of you in just one statement. This flag represents me, when I am in Greece, during the late summer.

  1. Can you do a personalised mood flag for me? I'm thinking along the lines of something that's solid black...
