With this abstraction I choose a contemporary form-language and deviate
from traditional figurative altar-representations which since the middle
ages mirror on a golden background the awareness of a different time in
which "gold" also stood for the light of god.
Since the One-Earth-Church is not intended to be used exclusively as a
sacral room but also for other events I designed the One-Earth-Altar as
a triptych in the style of medieval altars.
The altar alludes to the east-west orientation of the churces and the
measurements of the apse.
This way, the "light" of the rising sun is perceived as transferred
religious dimension and as aesthetic-spatial structure element.
