The Drift Army Series consists of two works completed in 2009, Wind Flag and Terrain Medal. Wind Flag is sky blue flag designed with a collection of aimless symbols: a cluster of dandelions, a circle of hitchhikers thumbs, a few wind systems and the Ancient Greek name for the four winds, "Anemoi". Terrain Pins are made to the exact composition and dimension as Military Ranking pins, on nickel and acrylic enamel. The five pins are designed to represent the colors and shapes of various landscapes: the sea, desert, forests, mountains and roadways. To celebrate the commencement of the two works together, a small flag raising was performed in the desert of Marfa, TX. A small cadre whistled "The Wind" by Cat Stevens as the flag rose at sunrise and fell at sunset. Images of this performance can be found at this link.
