The Declaration of independence Flag
Our country's flag is a representation of our beliefs for what our nation stands for, and we try to assign meaning to the abstract shapes and colors of the flag so as to stand out and be unique among other countries. What if our flags were based on texts that our country's founders and liberators produced as detailed representations of our nation's people, their rights and beliefs.
For this project tried to compare texts from three countries, India, Mexico and United states of America. The 'declaration of independence' texts were written to protect the rights and beliefs of the people of a nation by the founders in order to demand independence from their colonial rulers. These texts talk about the people's belief, suffering and morals.
What if we extract the key understandings from these texts and compare it with each other, would it describe our nations in a universal format. By assigning visual icons to these understandings would not only show the comparisons between the nation's beliefs but could also be used to create unique pieces of identities.
Our project was an experimental piece through which we wanted to not only compare what we have in common but also identify why our nations are unique as well.
