Weiyi Li is an artist who uses her website to showcase her work and also uses
the space to experiment with the format and conception of the website, including interesting ways for users to interact with the webspace.
One of her latest publications is ‘208 Non-Existing Countries and Areas’.
This publication contains the right half image of 208 national flags, juxtaposed front and back, and bound into a book. The sequence of the original flags in the book goes from perfectly symmetrical to asymmetrical. When one flips towards the end of the book, one realizes the rules of the book (of only using the right half image of both sides of a flag), hence, the book showcases 208 flags of 208 non-existing countries.
