AMBIGUIOUS TRUTH BLOWN
SOUTH SOUTH EAST
A Flag installed in the waters of the East River Estuary at low tide is blank on one side and declares THESE THINGS ARE COMMON TO ALL BEINGS on the other. From one side, the piece registers as a white flag of surrender. The other side references the Public Trust Doctrine by Roman Emperor Justinian 530 A.D. “…these things are common to all men beings: running water, the air, the seas, and the shore….” This proclamation first established the air and water as public commons—resources that today are rarely commonly held, and seldom accessible to all beings freely.
