This image displays one flag mounted inside of a white frame. The imagery on the flag is created using a digital overlay process to place images on top of one another. Covering the entire image is a landscape that has been manipulated to appear in only shades of red. The word 'SECURITY' is written horizontally across the top of the image. The text is modified so that each letter in the word stretches to the bottom of the image, creating vertical pillars. The pillars are collectively filled with the image of an upside-down metal bowl, reflecting a building interior. Along the top right corner of the image is a digitally applied text bubble that displays the text: 'The American flags on U.S. government building, a symbol of 'freedom' for most Americans, are nearly all made in prison.'
