As the election approaches, we've been thinking about the images of the political landscape from a purely visual point of view. We notice the stars and bars we see on a daily basis. The post 9/11 Americana fuses with electoral fervor. Which images make us think of politics and which our country? Here are a few both old and new. I particularly love the flag created with chain link and Dixie cups. The one at left is titled "Hillary in the White House." It was taken during the Clinton administration. It was observed at the Building Museum in a scale model of the White House. Perhaps Hillary can use it for wishcraft.
