House of God

We have asked the question before – and again. Where does art start and end?

London-based artist slinkachu is known for his ‘little people project’ which began in 2006, whereby he remodels and paints
miniature train set characters, arranging them in particular scenarios on the street, photographing them and leaving them
for passer-bys to stumble upon. The street art installation / photographic work is intended to encourage city-dwellers
to be more aware of their surroundings.

Slinkachu’s latest piece is ‘house of god (application to the department of city planning – ref: 13-3470/C)’ located in new york city.
the miniature installation is situated on a hydrant in which the artist has placed a crescent moon, a well-recognized symbol of the islam faith,
on the upper domed structure, as a means of referencing a mosque. At the base of the hydrant, a small sticker with the photo of an entrance
to a muslim place of worship, is accompanied by four figurines – three men and a woman – dressed in traditional attire.
