This giant American Flag is made of ironed-together plastic grocery bags. It was made by LeBrie Rich and Bill Will for an installation called "New Economy" in 2007. It was displayed in the Portland Art Museum for 9 months in 2012 under the title "Bloat".

In the installation the flag inflated and deflated by way of a coin-op mechanism connected to a squirrel cage fan hidden in a pedestal. Viewers put in a quarter and the flag inflated and lifted off the wall for about 20 seconds.

This listing is for the flag as a wall piece only. If you'd like to have the pedestal with coin-op, message me and we'll iron out the details (pun intended).

6' X 11'.
Flag hangs from the wall from two grommets.
It is hemmed around the edges and has a clear plastic backing.
