For this project, Cassani spearheaded a comprehensive investigation of the pivotal needs for prayer rituals of four world religions as regards space, furnishings, and other objects. The artist’s orientation here was particularly geared toward the makeshift, sometimes unofficial prayers rooms of religious minorities in European cities. She developed four mobile modules in which the most important standards for praying in Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Sikhism were addressed and fulfilled while engaging the smallest amount of space possible. The elements are all mass-produced objects, that, in abscence of the proper ones, act as sacred objects. The container is a 1 x 2 metres large box, foldable and transportable. Thesite is an airport, a prison, a cruise liner, a street or a garage.
