The Exorcist Set,

by Sandy Wang.

Faith functions as a bridge from the last generation to the next; it brings forth traditions

and culture that people had been practicing. Combing through history, the 70s saw

the rise of the horror genre in cinema, notably the classic cult film - The Exorcist. I chose

this iconic film as the project’s subject due to its spiritual themes, exploring how fear

in pop culture could act as a medium to influence the public of their faith.

21st Faith: Tell us about you and your

practice

Sandy: I’m an illustrator and designer!

I enjoy translating complex ideas

and concepts to digestible visuals for easy

understanding; like emotions and data.

Some of my works can also be pretty dark,

and ironic too.

What drew you to take part in 21st Faith?

How is faith important to you and your

practice?

I like the idea of discussing faith with

the recent events that happened over our

century. ‘Faith’ is relatable and close

to heart to everyone; whether you have

one or not. It’s important to me, because

it helps me to drill deeper and understand

my own values, which also open the stage

for anyone to be part of this conversation.

What role do you think faith will play in

the 21st century?

Faith functions as a bridge from the last

generation to the next; it brings forth

traditions and culture that people had

been practicing. So, I guess it’ll continue

to play that part as the world evolves

simultaneously, I think faith would always

be a catalyst of something big.
