RANDOM Randomized elements are being taken from a system which shows a single context. In coherence, every single elements change their spaces where they might have been in any other possible space in its closed system. Vexillological random synthesis. Flags are composed of distinguished symbolic icons. In this project, graphical data of every country in the world is put through a software which then, stabilizing the location information of each icon, systematically composes new hybrid flags out of them. Therefore, these hybrid flags, representing only themselves, remove the meaning hierarchy between each result and turn into abstract paintings. By revealing the primitive meaning of each symbol, the relationship between representation, meaning and ideology collapses in the production process.
