is giving everyone who has been inspired by PINK FLOYD,
a chance to be involved in a unique conceptual art & music experience.
All Pink Floyd fans are being asked to represent themselves by submitting a unique personally handcrafted flag or banner. You are not required to attend the event to be the most important part of the exhibit. YOU may also be eligible to collaborate with the exhibit.

"THE GREAT FLAG UNFURLING" is a gift from
PINK FLOYD devotees to
Pink Floyd; members, retired members,
"bleeding hearts" and artists.
As a way of showing our appreciation
for the outstanding gift of music,
art, inspiration and insight,
that they have passed onto us.
We understand, from experience, how very important Pink Floyd is to many of us.
And we would like to give you the opportunity to express your individuality, while uniting interests with other individuals, from around the world. The event will benefit the Charitable Trust of Sacrewell Farm, in Peterborough, England.
Each flag will be individually hung, and displayed in a rural country side field.
Each individual flag as well as the entire collection of flags are considered a piece of art.
The exhibit, as a whole, essentially representing ‘art within art’.
This type of conceptual art display is inspired by the art of Pink Floyd. Storm Thorgerson, Pink Floyd's 'in house' Art Director,and some of his company's works can be seen & purchased, by visiting: www.greatflagunfurled.org/takenbystorm.html

Pink Floyd and Radiohead
i was sitting here listening to the bends when it suddenly hit me how similiar floyd and R'head are. both in sound and their stance in the world of rock. both use studio production and sounds heavily. both are completely experimental and progressive. both have produced to album masterpieces. And both are seen as just about as weird and out there as you can get. anyway, what do you guys think?
