Prostration

We are raised being told to bow to no one. I was interested in the orthodox tradition of prostration and the purpose of this practice. This piece deals with my reservations pertaining to a practice which requires a show of humility while also inquiring as to its purpose. How much of a change in one's mindset would come as a result of simply changing one's posture to a more humble stance? For this piece i created metal structures which guide the body into these positions as a way to explore this question.
