The end of the tunnel

My first experience with Eastern State Penitentiary was framed by
this theological debate: on the one hand is the Quaker idea that
redemption begins within the intrinsically good soul of the individual,
and on the other is the Calvinist idea that we must be called out of
our total sinfulness by God's irresistible grace. My sculptural
installation at the prison titled The End of the Tunnel became a playful theological rumination on these ideas, mediated within the theme of escape.
