Isaac and Simone or the Relativity of the Horizon, 2012
What do the horizon, Chinese calligraphy, and graffiti in a bamboo forest have in common? This flag book investigates their peculiar relationship in a playful manner, trying to establish connections between them - after all, the notion of orientation is relative to the beholder. The explanation of this riddle is printed on a second layer of flags on the back of the center flags.
