I made this collage years ago in college.

It’s a US flag, cut up and mounted on a linen-covered board.  At the time, I was thinking about the Iraq War.  The linen reminded me of the US Army, dressed for combat in the desert.  It was a far cry from the GI Joe I grew up with, dressed for combat in jungle green camo, vestiges of Vietnam.

By pure chance, I photographed this thing yesterday, on the 14th anniversary of 9/11.  I didn’t plan it that way.  It just happened.

deconstructed flag

It seemed appropriate to share.  ∆
