Keywords: Tolkien, Christ, Your Empire and Your Desktop

USS Dragoon: One God to Rule Them All…And in the Darkness Bind Them – An Elvin class computer aircraft carrier prepared for battle with an on-deck army of knights and dragons.

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. GodsEyecosists 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.
