As a digital artist, it was very fun and exited to have my first psychical artwork launches in Old Melbourne Goal, which is one of Melbourne's most famous historical site. It was an amazing experience. Although being stacked in Old Melbourne Goal to do the installation made me felt bit depress, but it all worth the effort!!
it's still there so welcome to have a look :)
I was trying to discuss the fundamental function and essential importance of faith in this artwork, it is a very tricky and sensitive topic to deal with and represent, especially as the first temptation, but I'm glad with what I end up with and the out come is actually stronger than I expect.

I like the style and skill of this piece, and this is a very clever representation of a very abstract idea. The text that goes along with it, though I have several things to say about:

First, I do not feel that lack of faith is a bad thing. I know that a cross was used as the symbol, but I'll generalize for the sake of brevity. Faith in something that cannot be confirmed is not a virtue. It's a more friendly phrasing for adjectives and descriptive phrases such as "gullible," "easily convinced," and "weak minded." Faith causes irrational and dangerous behavior without any benefits that cannot be obtained in other ways. It isn't a good tool for judging anything, let alone framing everything that exists.

Secondly, if you're into philosophy, try listening to Sam Harris. He has a few books, plenty of debates and speeches on youtube, and other similar records. He often talks about the possibility of spirituality in the absence of any religion or dogma. He talks about exploring spirituality without making assumptions or attaching meaning that simply isn't there. Maybe you would enjoy hearing a view on faith that is very separate from the popular paradigm.
