Shame In Symbols of Honour: Flags

Brief

Visualize shame in symbols of honour, in this case, flags.

Theory

There are a few different approaches to shame on a human level. One of the approaches that resonated with me was the concept of shame as the absence of honour and power. Having been inspired by the notion, I felt compelled to use this theory to create a graphic representation.

 

As a result, I decided to distort the graphics of national flags, which are a universally prominent symbol of honour, to withdraw from the very essence of the honour that national flags represent. I took it upon myself to distort every national flag that currently belongs to a country on planet earth, and I created a typology book of distorted flags.
