In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God …
and the Word became flesh and lived among us,
and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth. [John 1]
This mixed-media installation design was inspired by Jesus’ Seven Last Words from the cross on Good Friday The seven background panels were constructed from manifold layers of opaque and translucent fabrics, tissue paper, newspapers, discarded bible pages and musical scores, handwritten text of the four Passion accounts, screen-printed versions of the Seven Last Words in English and Greek, etc. The layers were stitched together, then slashed and coarsely frayed to reveal glimpses of the layers. The three-dimensional corpus was constructed from fiber and metallic paint.
