Maneuvers

Maneuvers is a video depicting a computer animation of a perpetually waving American flag situated on a black background. Accompanying the flag are subtitles that have been transcribed from a nature documentary on the American bald eagle. These two elements work silently in conjunction to contest the definition of the eagle as a symbol of power. Manipulating language and image, Maneuvers brings renewed recognition to the power of articulation and the importance of re-contextualizing signifiers.
