This interactive art project is the latest from the The Tenement Museum's Digital Artist in Residence Program. While flags are a rigid representation of countries, national identity is in a constant state of flux. This site invites visitors to think critically and creatively about each country's ever-changing identity through the re-creation of national flags into more personalized artworks. It does a beautiful job of promoting cultural awareness and making people more mindful of perceptions and biases.

• While a blank sheet of paper rarely encourages people to create, this site offers up a deconstructive creative exercise to free visitors from having to "invent."

• The simplicity of the interface draws people in, stirs curiosity and a sense of play and, ultimately, inspires creativity.

• The site received 25,000 hits in the first week and some users are spending as much as an hour on the site.
