As part of the School of Making Thinking's hiking art residency, I lead an immersive lecture called Nomad Flag. For the duration of this residency, the artists hike through the Catskill Mountains, leading interactive art pieces that dealt with navigation and our shared situation of backpacking. Drawing inspiration from indigenous traditions, I lead the group in making a weaving on a back strap loom that reflected our relationship to the trail as hikers. We gathered material from our packs and the landscape to create our object, we then created a ritual to celebrate our newfound flag. Part of my intention behind this was to create a parody of the colonial practice of planting and raising flags and transform this into a ritual to celebrate temporality.
