The god of technology

Inspired by the [Yoruba] "god" [Ougun] who presides over iron, hunting, politics and war.

To give you a sense of just how bad-ass Ogoun is, please consider the description of a posession ritual :

His possessions can sometimes be violent. Those mounted by him are known to wash their hands in flaming rum without suffering from it later. They dress up in green and black, wave a sabre or machete, chew a cigar and demand rum in an old phrase "Gren mwe fret" (my testicles are cold). Often, this rum is first poured on the ground, then lit and, finally, the fumes generated by this are then allowed to pervade the peristyle. The sword, or much more commonly the machete, is his weapon and he often does strange feats of poking himself with it, or even sticking the handle in the ground, then mounting the blade without piercing his skin.

I was inspired to build a sculpture based on this sculpture I saw in Museon, The Hague

A extreme case of casemodig. This "robot" sculpture is a fully functional PC, with a debian 6 install. Many people contributed physical labor and ideas to the sculpture. Thanks! You too are welcome to physicaly/software hack it.
