SARCOPHAGUS at ARS Electronica 09

For ARS Electronica 2009 the GATE to ETERNITY opens
its virtual locks and starts to accept TEST PILOT DATA
(digital traces, info dust, ascii noise etc. of SEPP KEISER
and TIMOTHY LEARY) to be released by the public:
friends and family, archivists, fans and YOU!

Submitted data can be uploaded directly into the PILOTS'
ARCANUM CAPSULE from where it is released from control
forever and spread by the ANGEL APPLICATION.

The SARCOPHAGUS took off from a holy mountain ridge
in central Switzerland on Aug 31, went straight for the GATE,
and was rejected due to the five tons of steel attached to its data.

Damned to travel earth until it falls apart, the SARCOPHAGUS
then landed on the rooftop of the Ars Electronica Center in Linz,
Austria. Never too close to the ground but denied access to the
GATE, it took refuge from farmers, Swiss hillbillies and straying
bankers to celebrate the ARS Electronica Festival 2009 with the
global art crowd in Linz. Visit etoy.AGENTS and ANGELS for the
exhibition this Thursday through Tuesday!
