An Ardent Vestige - Mixed Media, 2013
Tiffany Jones, New Second Missionary Baptist
An expressive installation that pairs remnants of history together with photographs and sound in order to create an understanding of faith and tradition. Words of faith from New Second’s congregation hang delicately from tree branches surrounding a tree stump, which was once known as our pulpit. The voice of American poet, Maya Angelou, plays as she recites her poem, On the Pulse of Morning, a poem which reflects on the past in order to help us gain perspective of our journey ahead as a unified body of individuals, a larger community.
