WALL OF PRAYER [a growing floor book combining paper and digital drawing, begun 2001]
A walk-through floor book installation created as an expression of how war moves people. It is triggered upon the complex series of events since 9.11 and grows as new terror events take place in different parts of the world. Digital collages weave a tapestry of contemporary history from daily news - a simultaneous bombardment of war and media saturation. The idea of an ongoing artwork creates a parallel between an insecure object and an insecure world. It has been presented as a floor piece drawing from various references to the kind of epitaph or prayer-note sites or walls found round the world such as the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem or the Berlin Wall in Germany. It draws additional references to the prayer mats in Islam, the Buddhist prayer wheels in Tibet, and the Bayeux tapestry in France.
Exhibition sites have included the Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, UK (2005), the Grote Kerk Den Haag in The Hague and the Regentenkamer in The Hague, Netherlands (2004), and the Pinto Wharf Vaults, Valletta, Malta (2003).
