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.
