personal prayer transmission vessel by michael jantzen

a personal prayer transmission vessel

the personal prayer transmission vessel was designed to provide a unique sacred place in which to meditate and
(with the help of specially designed technology) send an intimate prayer to your personal god.
the exterior of the pptv is clad with white washed stucco, and gold colored metal. inside of the vessel, at the center of the floor,
is mounted a white metal kneeling bench equipped with an electronic digital note pad and pen. prayers can be written on the
digital pad with the digital pen. once the prayers are complete, the red send button at the center of the kneeling bench is pressed
in order to transcribe and transmit the hand written digital prayers out into the universe through the dish antenna mounted on the
top of the vessel. once the prayers have been transmitted, the word sent appears on the digital note pad.
crinkled gold foil lines the interior perimeter of the structure to reflect and symbolically contain the prayers of the occupant
until they are released through the antenna. the only light sources inside of the pptv come from the surface of the digital note pad,
and from the digital skylight mounted at the center of the ceiling. moving images of blue sky and white clouds can be seen
on the digital skylight and sounds of wind blowing can be heard to inspire the occupants during their visitation
to the personal prayer transmission vessel.
