Every country has their own traditions that are being used to present the identity of the concerned country. When an official ceremony takes place guards perform a choreography, for example while exchanging place when standing in front of a building, raising a flag or when performing an inspection of weapons. For this project these choreographies are transformed into glass sculptures by repeating the movements during the process of glass blowing.
