Chameleon: An LED flag that can become the flag of any country #ArtTuesday

Thanks to Mar for writing in to share this project! Via Varvara & Mar creative studio / visual artists.

Chameleon is a white flag made of a fabric with embeded LEDs that allow it to become the flag of any country. The piece reacts to the people’s presence by showing in a compulsive way the flags of different countries, chosen at random from a database. The design of each flag is never completed, but mutates constantly from one nation to another, blending colours and shapes in such way that it becomes an amalgam of all flags and none of them at once. Like a scared animal who tries to adapt to its environment, the piece is immersed in a never-ending process(text by Pau Waelder).

The inspiration for the artwork came from our multi-cultural backgrounds. The aim is to communicate the problematic of national identity, belonging, and tolerance in the cosmopolitan times, and at the same time, rising and extremely polarised nationalism. We use light for two reasons: first, for being able to mutate one flag to another. And second, for affecting entire space. It means, not only the Camaleon takes the colors of the flag but entire space changes together with the artwork.

Materials: 142.5m RGB LED strips, fabrique, metal frame, 5 power supplies, electronics, computer (300x220x30cm)
