EMT Flag


(Emotional Mistranslation Flag)

Mistranslations are not limited to spoken and written language. Despite the various contemporary means available to aid in communicating as humans, despite education, attraction, and even the sometimes superhuman will of love, somehow we just fail to the point of disconnect. Unlike typical flags that translate history, ideology and nationalism through color and symbolism, EMF is a piece that simultaneous signifies mourning and transience propelled by emotional loss of any kind.
