There is no literal affiliation with any faith per se, rather the piece aims to question the idea of prayer in public. The piece fuses humor, sarcasm and sincerity producing a myriad of reactions from sincere and humorous use to offense and praise, etc., aiming to spark further debate about the contemporary difficulty of religion within the public community. The artist aims to explore the boundaries of faith by blurring the lines where public expression is permitted and prohibited; trying to navigate somewhere between the boundaries of propaganda and censorship.
