156" x 38" x 156"; Flagpole: 25'

This piece consists of four elements: a narrow white brick building, a thirty foot flagpole, a flag printed with the letters “NON,” and an action that was performed during installation. Over the course of a day, and without an audience, the artist dug a tunnel under the brick structure, emerging into a small space between its walls; he then knocked a few bricks from under the eaves and, putting a rope through this opening, raised the flag from the inside of the building. Exiting the crawl space, he tied the rope to a small stake and filled in the tunnel, covering his means of access.
