Internet as Religion

This series is a collection of altar pieces portraying Internet and social media culture as a form of religion. I have been really interested in the way we treat our technology like sacred objects, so I wanted to blend our love and acceptance of these things and show them in the way in which the love and passion towards religions are shown. I’ve noticed many parallels between technology and religion and thought it interesting to explore these intersecting points. Internet as Religion is an ongoing series and I’m extremely excited to see how it evolves over time.
