Through a process of degeneration of both sound and image, Just endows the iconic American flag with new context and implication. The image is repeated by generations, using different processes such as digital video, computer printout and photocopying, and then combined with degenerated sound. Single frames of original digital images are exported, and evolve through the repetition of process, before being metamorphosed back to digital image by scanning and rendering. This working process explores how differently an image can be read when put in a specific context, which separates it from its universal meaning. In Just the process not only conveys the idea but also creates the concept, and the form of Just acts as a clue to decipher the content. Just plays with image, sound and language but breaks down their karma and builds up new combinations of meaning.
