  1. A great podcast and an artist I did not know about. I love this artwork and there is so much in it to think about: why did the artist choose to represent such colourful objects as flags in black and white? Why are they vertical in orientation rather than horizontal. In the vertical format, they better mirror the space taken up by her body but is there more to this choice?

    Thanks for making me think! 🙂
