In times of crisis people seek protection in government, religion, and technology. But as scientists and politicians struggle for a response to the coronavirus, more people aremturning to faith. And as uncertainty and speculations took hold our belief in masks, sanitisers, lockdowns, social distancing almost became a religion in and of itself. An installation visualises our daily rituals in times of the pandemic and the almost spiritual importance it takes in our lives. As an unexpected intervention in public spaces it tries to recontextualise COVID-19 safety measures and religious symbolism.
