Description: Through a series of six interactive multimedia landscapes, common appliances and folk superstitions are bound through poetry. For much of the world technology has become a religious force, a cure-all box of magic tricks that somehow solves our problems, although we have no idea how these gadgets work or even what problems they solve. Beneath every vacuum cleaner, bomb and analog computer is some hidden belief in the unknown, some lurking fear of fire and teeth.
