Mammon is a giant mechanised replica of a Maneki Neko, the Japanese talisman of wealth and popularity, thought to bring good luck.

The Fortunecats have made many iterations of this work, the version at The Art of Bots is a comical, male, God of Capitalism created with poet Deborah Layzell. You can wake Mammon and hear his generativity composed wisdom and thoughts on the power (and vacuity) of wealth. You will also receive your own unique commandment.

Mammon was shown at Art of the Bots, at Somerset House, London – 15 &16 April 2016

A Recap

Much of the work of Dh Drab and Shardcore is an argument, not about the existence of God, but about how the possibilities of human consciousness can be discussed in art.

They have made three installations in two different churches using paintings of the human form.  These showed that the conceptual fragility of religion and the obsolescence of painting, in combination, could produce powerful comments about the relationship of an individual to a society.

Last year they placed two giant Fortune Cats in Jubilee Square, gave them the role of gods and created a fanatical cult of robed worshippers.  The public then asked the Cats questions and received The Answers.

The Enlightenment Machine at the Latest is the prototype for a series of installations that reflect some of our modern, uncategorised uses for the God experience.
