Marked by sharp laser beams the flag runs a choreography with sovereignly associated elements.

The focal point is a translucent flag, its movement choreography is controlled by complex robotics. Beyond the flag´s operation range, a laser and a light sensor are positioned. Upon collision between laser and fabric – sound is created. This work’s poetry lies in the random-appearing combinations of floating silk and gritty sound. Underlying this is Stumreich’s precise audiovisual composition. Every drape has been analyzed on the basis of its sound. According to these aesthetics, the robotics of the flag choreography Sovereignty was programmed to run in a 9-minute loop. Marked by sharp laser beams, sovereignly associated elements (as the title implies) can be found, such as leeway, a change ofdirection, or a drop.
