Salvation Made Simple™ is an interactive mixed-media art installation exploring the conflations between religion and commerce via a fictional spiritual organisation called The School. 

They worship The Goddess, a fictional being pieced together from actual rituals and traditions from 13th-century Temasek, inspired by the erasure of native culture that occurs as a result of colonialism. Riffing off the appropriation and instant gratification that is commonplace in pop culture today, Salvation Made Simple™appeals to millennials with #Blessed merchandise dispensed via vending machines.
