Carnivore's Cathedral: Whose Child is this? (2003)

Carnivore's Cathedral - A neo-Christian Karaoke machine / computer cathedral with kinetic gargoyles leading an imperial theme song sing along.

"GodsEye" is borrowed from the computer gaming term "God's eye perspective" which positions the player as a God/General/Wizard floating above the world - awarded total control over cities, armies and minions. GodsEye consists of several computer sculptures that make up a techno-/neo-medieval landscape built around the functional hardware elements of a computer desktop environment: keyboard, mouse, monitor, tower, etc. Formally, it draws from the subcultures of custom computer case modifications, hardware hacking, computer game modification and sampling.
