Technological Crucifixion is the third piece in my Mechanical Christ series. Each sculpture depicts a different aspect of technology becoming Godlike. My goal here was to portray religion through technology, because I feel both hold a power over us all. I wanted them to be visually beautiful, but suggestively horrifying, all in the same glance. For anyone interested in seeing these and other works of mine in person, they will be at The Hive Gallery at; 729 S Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90014 from November 6th to the 27th.
The following videos are stop-motion/time lapse of myself assembling the sculpture “Technological Crucifixion”, or as my good friend John Young put it “Techno Jesus.” I started this on June 20th (Fathers Day) of 2010, and just recently finished it on October 20th. I picked at it here and there on the weekdays and sometimes managed to get a few hours in on Sundays. I had assistance from my 2-year-old son who was more than happy to help Daddy make a mess!
