30'x21'x 12' Wood/Fabric. Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA
This site-specific temporary installation centered around the realities of the obstacles Paul of Tarsus and early Christians experienced by the convergence of three cultures: Greek, Hebrew, and Roman. The installation was commissioned by Fuller Theological Seminary for a conference on Paul featuring N.T. Wright from England. The installation was up for 6 months.
The graffiti was written in Greek, Hebrew, and Latin, and used derogatory phrases that were associated with the early Christians; Greek: Conjurers, Absurdists, Worshipers of Foreign Demons. Hebrew: Swineherd (Pig feeders), and Blasphemers. Latin: Over-turners, Arsonists, Unpatriotic, Cannibals. Paul was beheaded around 70 AD.
