Criss~Crossing The Divine updates Crossings/An Interactive installation that premiered in the 2009 Thessaloniki Biennale Gr. In 2014 Guild Hall Museum hosted our robotic sculptures & interactive games addressing ever-expanding religious intolerance fueling global wars. The authors of faith created flexible governing scriptures wherein perceptions expand with shifting tastes & priorities thru generations. While robotic sculptures representing devotees of their faith perform quintessential gestures, like actors onstage conversing in a video on the wall, people play interactive games. For Creative Tech week we display one interactive Spiral Vortex Paint Game. Participants, in virtual dialogue with 46,000 original scriptures from five faiths, use an interactive wand to curate topics & assign more or less importance to each topic they select to explore. Peter Koger’s software parses, integrates all topic-word priorities the player assigns, determining which three hundred color-coded text results will appear. After scrolling to read the displaying scripture results, the participant is directed to a website to learn from which religions their color-coded text results originated. Each individual’s search and corresponding results are distinct and this kind of search can never settle into a permanent groove because new questions discover new results, ad infinitum, with no amen.
