December 13th, 2011 - Tuesday

Location: Sacred Trinity
Designer: Kolyn Amor, artist - The Altaer

Location Notes: Sacred Trinity was home for a long time to Sanctus 1 prior to decamping to a more central location. It hosts a wide variety of services, events, exhibitions and concerts and as such is thought of as a spiritual/emotional home by a large number of people from all sorts of backgrounds. There’s been a church on the site from 1635, with the current Grade 2* listed building dating from 1752. It's not far from M&S, at the corner of Blackfriars & Chapel St, so pop along when you can.

Shrine Notes: 'I'm A Celebrideity- Get Me Out Of Here!' - a response to the concepts of fame, fortune, commercialism, Christianity, voyeurism & vanity - all with a hint of festive cheer...

Designer Notes: "I awoke one morning and found myself famous." Lord Byron
"Seek not greater wealth, but simpler pleasure; not higher fortune, but deeper felicity." Mahatma Gandhi
"When any creativity becomes useful, it is sucked into the vortex of commercialism, and when a thing becomes commercial, it becomes the enemy of many." Arthur Miller
"Christmas to a child is the first terrible proof that to travel hopefully is better than to arrive." Stephen Fry
"An exhibitionist is nothing without a voyeur." S.A. Sachs
"What is the vanity of the vainest man compared with the vanity which the most modest possesses when, in the midst of nature and the world, he feels himself to be man!" Friedrich Nietzsche.
