There should be a flag that represents every human being in this world, a universal flag, regardless of nationality, status, race or gender.
This new universal flag is in constant movement, whilst its edges dreamily waving within the shifting horizons. We are reminded of our own nature ranging from freedom to determinism, but finally we are able to grow beyond what we commonly aim for. Hence a dialogue is established, between determined nature and the freedom that is emitted to enhance.
The flag consists of a real cloud, which is released from the top of a flagpole. The cloud is created with the help of a new nebulization technology, which employs high pressure to pulverize water into micro-particles, that can float in the air. At the top of the flagpole light is emitted, to enhance the visibility of the water particles.
