souls/soles: context  

Souls/soles at St. Michael’s Church, Honiton, was a critique of social positions and hierarchies prevalent in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, enacted through the spatial positioning of an imagined congregation in this former parish church. 

Local history research from the period from 1647 until 1797, during which time six fires had devastated this small Devon market town, provided source material for the project.
