21st Faith

21stfaith

We are a collaborative research project, investigating and questioning faith as a human feeling. 

This publication presents 32 creative projects created for an exhibition in October 2017 at The Workshop, Lambeth. 

But what do I believe in?

I believe in change,

Cities fall, systems fall,

But actually everything is replaced with a similar mechanism,

A human mechanism.

We only see the world from our human perspective,

So what change am I talking about?

The change from within,

That you can’t see,

That you don’t hear about,

The change of mood,

The change of feel,

The change of mood when entering an unfamiliar place.

A happy change,

A surprising change,

An uncomfortable change,

A panic.

A change of feel,

When the weather changes from sunny to grey.

Wishing you had stay inside,

Wishing you took the shorter route,

Wishing you had seen that puddle,

Wishing you hadn’t been on the street,

Walking in cities show me these changes,

How time and behaviour can alter spaces,

The streets give me hope

That the rationalise has not taken over,

That there is things out of control.

So bizarre,

So irrational,

Difficult to describe,

Easy to feel.

Walking in cities,

Perhaps that is my Faith.
