“My goal is to spark dialogue about a topic often avoided, and often treated cynically by the contemporary art world. I employ the visual language of signage and public information systems, using them as a contemporary form of older religious communication systems: stained glass, illuminated manuscripts, church furniture, etc. I balance humor and seriousness, sarcasm and sincerity, in a way that bridges a subject matter that is often presented as heavy or difficult.”
As you can see in the photo above, city-dwellers are quite confused as to the purpose of this "prayer booth" and seem unsure of what to do with it. Is it a phone booth that calls directly to God? Does it warm my hands? Does it now cost money to pray? Do I really have to kneel?
I'm looking forward to when these get covered in graffiti and eventually completely blend in with the urban background.
