During the 2008 Olympic Game in Beijing, I read in the news that Taiwanese audience had to bring the national flag of Myanmar in order to cheer for their national teams. When being waved, Myanmar’s flags looked similar to Taiwan’s. This piece explores how tricky design can invoke images of implications or multiple meanings. Taiwan’s national flag is the starting point for this design that looks into the adjustability of meanings in contemporary political environment. As I designed this piece, I also considered the problem of its legitimacy in the world politics and the fact that it has to be shown in international exhibits. Originally it was specially made for the 2009 Taiwan Contemporary Art Group Exhibit in Paris. In the international exhibit promoted by the Taiwanese government, I attempted to use this piece to advertise Taiwan and to present Taiwan’s political situation.
