Geraldine Spilker believes that with the steady demise in the West of religion, with its structure and the emphasis on something bigger than ourselves, we are losing a crucial component of our humanity. Dedication, contemplation and honouring are valuable assets. Her project ‘Now here in Nowhere’ intends to reintroduce the sacred into our lives by creating a place for it in our homes. It picks up on the traditional idea of the family altar, a place devoted to personal sacred objects and memories. The material Geraldine has used, stained glass, gives a familiar sense of religiosity, but the design is a contemporary interpretation.
