Entry Description: In an effort to connect with the viewer on a spiritual level I have created, by my own hand, a prayer kneeler. After showing the piece in a gallery installation, I am now bringing it into the real world to examine human interaction with a spiritual object.
Story: I see the world today as full of people whom are asleep. To deal with this dilemma and my own evolutionary journey of spirituality i created a prayer kneeler out of Rosewood. When I showed this piece in a gallery people were respectful and engaging and knew the meaning of the piece. Now I am bringing it into the real world to see how strangers interact with it, or rather do not interact with it. In my eyes some of them are asleep and never even notice it.
