Assembly

0

Assembly is a series of site-specific installations that perform Muslim prayer spaces, comprising of 1:1 scaled moving floor projections with surround sound. The project uses motorised filming rigs to record the religious practices taking place in each mosque. What is recorded and how it is recorded will be determined by the community, informed by the social/religious rules of the site. The motorisation of the rig is an essential element as it enables the footage to be projected back into site in synchronised time and space. This filmic representation of the religious practice can then be ‘experienced’ in the architectural site, hosted by each community. Project partners were Inclusive Mosque Initiative, Interfaith UK and Everyday Muslim Heritage and Archive Initiative.
