FlagTag is an interactive installation that invites people to create their own flags based on their cultures, stories, and experiences. One can create his or her own flag, or collaborate to create a collective flag. This installation calls for unity within diversity and inspires people too recognize differences, however appreciate them.

During a 14 week term, we felt compelled to share the stories of children of immigrants. Growing up, I looked at both the Korean flag and the American flag and felt a connection. However, I did not feel whole in either. I started to meet many other children of immigrants that felt this sentiment. Flags can be a symbol of pride, representation, and unity.
We were responding to America's response to Trump's election. Flags were being used to divide and separate, and we realized that that has been the case for a long time.
Create a place where people can communicate and share their experiences and stories and a place that promotes empathy and listening. Redefine the symbol of a flag into something that means unity.
This popup was designed to prototype the interaction experience where families and friends were invited to share their stories and experiences. The popup's intention was to encourage empathy and open-mindedness. It was a successful party where Flagtag's message and movement was shared with the people who attended.
