Spanning the weeks surrounding the 2020 United States presidential election, Killoran displayed a series of flags that highlighted both the practical administrative concerns of the electoral process as well as the existential crisis brought on by the current political moment. The project was in San Predro California at  Harborview and Pole which hosts an ongoing series of artist designed flags.

The first flag displayed from Oct 5th – October 19th was an enlarged version of the voter registration form.

The third flag, entitled TBD was hoisted on November  3rd, Election Day and displayed an image of an empty presidential podium. It continued to fly until the election’s result was clearly determined and therefore serve as a public marker of American political precariousness.

November 7th to ??

This final flag of the series, titled “Hoister’s Dilemma,” the flag bears the image of a high definition television displaying an American flag prominently placed in a living room. However, the room is inverted in relationship to the flag depicted on the screen, thus leaving the decision of whether to hang the flag so that the image of the American flag appears right side up or alternatively to orient the living room right side up, leaving the depiction of the American flag upside down, entirely up the hoister.
