ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the study of materializing visions either through religion or fieldwork and analysis. The author mentions the ethnographic snapshot he took in January 2009, during a road trip along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, going to the Redeemend Christian Church of God (RCCG) headquarters in the Redemption City in Nigeria. It also highlights the position of the "Material Religion" journal regarding religion, which it defines as being linked to what people do with material things and places. The author then reflects on his own relationship with the material and the visual.
