ART WORK/PROJECT NAME: #HOLY TECH
Marc & Chantal, in collaboration with Brainrental have created an immersive temple to honour the 'Gods' of technology. Responding to our open call, their winning design is a hybrid of an archaeological excavation site and Mayan temple; it both pays tribute to and critiques our modern-day obsession with our devices. Audiences are invited to enter the temple in small groups to explore the electro-glyphs contained within. A throne of technological-wonder also awaits them – in a manner most fitting for Instagram!
