For the exhibition What Mirror Do You Want To Lick? (WMDYTL?) at Frans Masereel Centrum in Antwerp Belgium, we were asked to devise a series of fictitious countries and their flags for an alternate reality "Flags of the World" poster.
To accomplish this we wrote the “Country Generator”, which deconstructed country naming tropes – location, geological traits, color – into an array which is reordered every time the page loads and generates 500 unique names. We then created flags based around a selection of the procedurally generated country names.
