The Ritual Project
Questioning tradition and experimenting with the patterns of everyday life, ‘The Ritual Project’ is a series of works based around the question: "Why do we, as humans, perform rituals?"
Through research in fields such as anthropology, theology and sociology, brought to life in both digital and printed forms, this series of works are all linked by one overhanging theme with a contemporary twist. Despite the change evolution brings, ritual has stayed rooted in human nature since its origin, all the way to the present day. This project questions and dissects the concept of ritual, it finds the reasonings behind our affiliation with it, and finally redesigns it in a contemporary form.
