Large scale kites printed on paper commissioned as part of the AHRC funded Design, material culture and popular creativity in suburban faith communities.
This project explores the ways in which suburban faith communities create space focusing on architectures, material cultures, rituals, music and performance. The project seeks both to analyse the dynamic cultural aesthetics of faith in one specific locality in suburban West London and to work with faith communities to support their creative engagements with this suburban location and the wider community. The project is founded on an ongoing theoretical engagement with the relationship between religion and suburban space, which combines historical and comparative research. It is also shaped by a sustained relationship with artistic and design practioners with whom critical approaches to both understanding the material cultures of faith and shaping new suburban faith spaces have been developed.
