The scriptorium. First, practice your uncial letters with pen and ink...

When you are confident, copy the next paragraph of the Bible passage [John 1] to the sheet. When a sheet is full, hang it up.


The 'fridge magnet' wall - create prayers from the words on postcards. There are blank cards if you need a word that has not been provided.


Audio Tool/Tonematrix music software used as a station. This provided most of the ambient music for the whole event, changing tune as people play with the pixels.

Making paintings, collages and Lego sculptures as prayer or to add to the central station.

The central station is a spiral not a labyrinth.

This clock diplays a picture of the room captured every ten seconds.
