The Hiker's Flag (2011)

The Hiker's Flag
Wool, Hitchhiker's, Wood staff cleaned by Beaver. Leather

An emblem pattern made of hitchhiker burrs, holding to wool; as it would during a hike. The wood staff was pulled from a creek, and has been chewed clean by a beaver.

The Hiker's Flag is a comment on the strange concept of ownership of land from natures point of view. The Flag can be contradictory to History how Flags have been used to mark territories. Or it can be seen as some kind of nationalism of nature, that Nature doesn't have it's own voice and should be better represented and protected.
