I have used the flags of the Middle East to explore the perpetual destruction and re-building that seems to be the present fate of the region. The work are to Gif-files and a painting. Left the Gif displays evenly 17 Middle Eastern flags, one painted on top of the previous flag on a small canvas. The flags are from Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Yemen. In the middle, the Gif displays the few steps it takes to destroy the surface of the canvas. On the right the erased canvas.
