RELIGION REALIGNED

EDITORIAL DESIGN, WEB DESIGN | 2021

Religion has been a defining factor in people’s lives for several hundred thousand years. Religion is ubiquitous across the globe, and virtually everyone has had to contend with it in one way or another.

My senior thesis, Religion Realigned, aims to explore religion through three projects that look at the subject from different critical perspectives. ​​​​​​​

MY ROLE

The entirety of this project was my responsibility. Everything from conceptualization to execution. This could not have been possible without the support and guidance from my thesis professors' Joe Marianek and Dinah Fried.

THE UNSUNG MANIFESTOS

The Unsung Manifestos spotlights the more obscure and lesser-known religions that are still at a comparatively young stage. This is to highlight how equally illogical all religions are and though some are treated with gravitas in today’s society, it does not equate to believing something more plausible than the contents in these books.

This book intends to allow the reader to contextualize these religions in the forms that they are placed in and attempt to imagine the religions as fairytales, science-fiction, or even completely factual. All religion have been perceived, at some point, in one of these forms during its’ evolution.

THE SANCTUM

The Sanctum is a website that explores the material objects that reflect a religion in their places of worship and asks the viewer how important they truly are in representing the space. Religion can be divisive and prejudicial, so in response, The Sanctum allows users from around the globe to experience an unfamiliar place of worship in its purest essence.

THE INDOCTRINATION INACTIVITY BOOK

The Indoctrination Inactivity Book aims to expand the minds of young adults who have inborn religious views and opinions, due to their communities or upbringings. It encourages them to explore their biases, thoughts, opinions and hopefully allows them to broaden their mindsets about topics they might have previously been certain on. ​​​​​​​

NEXT STEPS

Moving forward,  I want to continue working on the Sanctum and complete the other spaces on the site as well as hopefully, if people contribute, take that into consideration as well and make changes. I also want to expand on the Unsung Manifestos and research and include more obscure religions in the books.
