Designed to explore memories and mindfulness, this display is inspired by Yinka's experiences of Pentecostal church ritual travels from London to Margate. The digital art projection will be divided into four segments, each symbolizing a key element of this journey: white garments, incense scents, water, and a dreamscape.
