Religion & Celebrity Culture

Religion & Celebrity Culture

 

Self initiated project exploring the relationship between celebrity culture and religion. The final outcome was a hand-made stained glass star which represents the "star" in the sense of a celebrity in a religious medium. The stained glass is taken out of it's environment and placed into a photography studio - somewhere celebrities feel at home.

 

Through this project, it was discovered that there are very close parallels between religion and celebrity culture, both have "followers", a "central being" and rituals. My final aim was to show the similarities visually.
