Religious and spiritual pilgrimages have an unquestionable otherworldly aura about them, something beyond and outside time. Deprived from carnal pleasures and worldly desires, pilgrims are stripped down to their basic humanity.

The performative experience of returning pilgrims is nearly always of spiritual vigour and eminent internal peace. Lightly treading in a space earnestly occupied by millions of pilgrims over hundreds of years, the body tunes into harmony with an elevation of thought, and a heightened spiritual awareness of mind, body and soul.

The brutalist architecture of the M4 motorway is made up of concrete pillars, metal piping and solid walls, which divide the town from southeast to northwest, dominating the physical landscape.
