The day after the tragic massacre, coincidentally, Thomas' latest transmedia installation, organized by the late curator Amy Brandt, was scheduled to open at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia, seeking to interrogate that very symbol, and in his words "disrupt" its historical oppressiveness. It consists of a single channel video projecting kaleidoscopic patterns of the Confederate flag, filtered through the hues of the Black Power Movement. The flag is distorted to the beat of a 50-speaker soundtrack, "African American and Afro Caribbean voices of dissent or voices for justice," Thomas says, from MLK, Malcolm X, and Gill Scott-Heron to Chris Rock and Kanye. "It's trying to speak to the power of the aural legacy of protest, redefinition, and celebration of the late 20th century," he adds. In front of the image stands a microphone inviting viewers to contribute to the dialogue and incorporate that legacy into the 21st century during pauses that punctuate the soundtrack.
