Multi-faith Prayer Room

Rannikko Vesa-Pekka

Animated drawing "Multi-faith Prayer Room" combines limbo zones of travelling to assosiativeness of memory. Constantly shaping animation juxtaposes images from transit areas of airports and humanised birds to fragmented written narration. The starting point of the work is Heathrow airport's hybridised prayer room.
