A series of handmade flags to communicate with the natural world, using nautical symbols and the semaphore alphabet. Silk pleated and tied shibori style, then mordanted and dyed with local tannins, lichens, human urine, and plant matter. BM&Y (Between Me & You) semaphore letters performed as a mantra to the sea and forest and documented with site specific sound recordings.
