Ephphatha Front View

Ephphatha meaning ‘Be opened’, was an audiovisual installation staged at the Cyberarts Studio in the National University of Singapore in 2006.

22They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him.  23He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”
24He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”  
25Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes.  Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.  

From The Gospel of Mark, Chapter 8: 22-25



The installation setup includes a video projection of a cathedral, broken mirrors and an interactive soundboard that visitors are encouraged to walk on.
