Project description

As a response to the challenge of envisaging alternative futures and different social formations in times of climate emergency, growing social crisis and pandemic, this work takes what is available to reorganise and rearticulate pre-existing elements to propose new entangled relations and alternative realities. Through the action of stealing natural resources from coats of arms of different countries, this work generates a digital visual archive for plants, animals and people available now for the creation of new emblems. The aim is to freely reorganise the elements to question the economic, racial, and gender roles commonly associated with different species, therefore, thinking in alternative articulations beyond the perception of the land, water, and people as resources or commodities.

The virtual realm offers space for infinite combinations. This project, however, carried out just a few to turn them into flags. More banners and flags are in their way as this project intends to expand and develop an open-access existence for future collective participation.
