US Flag Redacted | 2022

In 2019 American industrial designer and REMO designer Tucker Viemeister created a graphic that shows the US flag with portions blocked out, to critique the redacted release of the investigation into president Donald Trump's collusion with Russia. Tucker posted the Redacted US Flag to social media on 20 April, two days after the redacted Mueller Report was released to the public. Thick lines cover parts of the flag's 13 red stripes to mimic the way that words, phrases and paragraphs are blacked out in the 448-page document, which details special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian influence on the 2016 US presidential campaign. "This version of our once-proud nation's flag did a good job of summarising the State of Our Union in the wake of the recently 'released' Mueller Report," Viemeister told Dezeen. "Can the Redacted States of America lead the free world?" Reference: Dezeen, 23 April 2019
