To bridge our common humanity through the exchange of knowledge, dialogue and the practice of faith
The Abrahamic Family House is a landmark project. The breath-taking site, on Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island, encompasses a mosque, a church, a synagogue and a Forum. It welcomes people from all walks of life –to participate in a unique environment, including religious services, tours, festivals and opportunities to explore issues around faith. We were honoured to have been involved in this seminal project.
Working alongside incredible creative partners
In partnership with Squint Opera, one of our longstanding creative collaborators, we were commissioned to create the media content for three installations and enhanced soundscapes for the exhibition in the Forum. The Forum, a space not affiliated to any religion, is a place for members of diverse faith communities to exchange knowledge, share experience and nurture mutual understanding.
Journeys of faith
The media installations look in turn at journeys of faith through everyday lives, the symbolism of light, the importance of the word and coming together in places of worship. They each express moments of shared experience across the three Abrahamic faiths and are deeply underpinned by the core messages of mutual respect, empathy and tolerance promoted by the Abrahamic Family House. The powerful media provides moving, emotional, and spiritual content that is contemplative and mesmeric. They grow from and respond to the simplicity and beauty of the architecture - designed by Ghanaian-British architect David Adjaye.
