What semaphore flags?

12/10/2012

Next year’s IHME Project by Miroslaw Balka uses semaphore signal flags as a means of communication. The artist would like to suggest to newly deploy the semaphore signals to serve the special needs of city communities. In the background also lies a desire to awaken discussion on how today´s society could survive in, for example, an energy crisis when our communication relies fully on electricity and new technologies.
