Belief and Magic: The art of the Reliquary// Magical Objects//Field//Term 2

The slideshow explaining reliquaries made me think a lot more about the fact that what i have been creating during this module, should have a purpose in order to make it more accessible. The idea of a reliquary protecting the important sacred aspect, reflects my notion of the brain being sacred and this shouldn’t be forgotten because of mental health struggles. By encouraging people to think of themselves as reliquaries it encourages the culture of self appreciation during harder times in life and discouraging self dissatisfaction which will often worsen situations.

By encouraging people to create/ use objects to in order to help during stressful situations we encourage a less medicinal way of coping with lives hard times and tackle the root causes of issues instead of just trying to cover them up with short term fixes like medication.
