Unfolded by artist David Fix

Created using over 80 photographs of melting Lake Michigan ice, this piece depicts an unfolded American flag. During a military funeral, the service man or woman folds the flag and gives it to a family member of the deceased. The concept of unfolding the flag symbolizes a rebirth. Several faces can be seen throughout the flag, most notably that of Benjamin Franklin in the lower right corner. These faces were not put there by the artist, but emerged naturally.
