This was a project sponsored by Nokia (Helsinki) and mentored by Mike Kruzeniski and Juhaa Hemanus. The brief was to find a way to connect people across small or large distances using an experience that was inspired by our own culture, faith, trends and tradition. The experience had to be non-verbal. This project was selected to be presented at the Only Planet conference in 2008 at Espoo, Finland.
‘Loops of Faith’ is a concept which connects families, friends and loved ones to each other using a system of bracelets and prayer wheels. The inspiration for such a project was sought from customs and rituals prevalent in India, China and other parts of the Eastern World as ubiquitous and ancient acts of Faith. The aim of this concept was to demonstrate that rituals, ceremonies and traditions of connectivity were still vital seeds for creating communication platforms for future generations.
