Installation working with the ratio of colours in state flags. Using a computer program, a resulting colour of state flags of Slovakia and Czech Republic was found by the artist. The colour of Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic as well, was used as a primer on the wall. It was then embellished with a flower ornament in the colour of Slovakia. Tools used for painting on the wall were left in situ. Cans used for paint were filled with dictionary texts defining the given countries and describing their state flags.
