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. 

21st Faith: Tell us about you and your

practice

Deji: My name’s Deji and I’m 23 year-old

multimedia creator, with a focus on sound

and music. My life’s been centred around

the underground music scene since

I was in school, and I became increasingly

involved as my interest in the culture grew.

More recently, the art that’s peripheral

to music and the different ways they allow

the audience to perceive the media is what

drives me.

What drew you to take part in 21st Faith?

How is faith important to you and your

practice?

21st Faith is a project I became aware of

shortly after it was conceived, and I thought

the premise was necessary to explore.

Even though it’s quite an ambiguous term,

I think ‘faith’ is something quite human

regardless of individual values, beliefs

or how stringently rules are followed.

Metaphysical imagery is something that

is recurring in my work and the name

of my collective, ‘Pineal Sounds’ came

as a result of my interest in metaphysics

within different cultures and religions.

What role do you think faith will play in

the 21st century?

We’re living in a really uncertain time

and our concerns mirror the complexity

of our lives. There’s a lot going on in the

world, from global problems like climate

change to personal issues such as mental

health. Ultimately, I think faith is a concept

that evolves with the people practicing it.
