The god(s) project explores how people in this city experience spirituality and create meaning for their lives. In Hong Kong, with its dazzling distractions and churn of work-sleep-success, how do people pursue their religions? We want to follow the followers and understand what happens when a community congregates in a sacred space, and how individuals define and connect with their God, gods and/or Truth (with a capital T).
We've trekked across Hong Kong in search of sacred spaces, tucked into the corners of busy streets or hidden in the upper levels of office buildings. We've listened to calls to prayer, whipped willow branches against the ground and witnessed fire rituals from one of the oldest monotheistic faiths. We've spoken to a range of people about their childhoods and turning points, their wonderings and wanderings, and discovered how they create meaning through faith (or an absence of faith) in their lives. So what does it all come down to?
