‘hedonIsM(y) trojaner’ by babis cloud

german artist babis cloud conceived ‘hedonIsM(y) trojaner’, an installation of the ancient greek trojan horse of troy fabricated from computer keyboard buttons. the recycled keys are arranged to display a gradient of ivory-white to replicate the famous animal – this time in rocking form. the sculpture is commentary on the hedonistic susceptibility of contemporary culture, referencing not only the greek mythology, but the well known ‘trojan’ virus of the internet. the consumer grip of human internet use is the pivotal point of the piece, from facebook to online groceries and internet dating, all aspects of life are infected by the mighty world wide web.

  • How big is this horse?

  • So Bert staal, dice sculptures makes this work redundant? You are clearly not so clever, but thank you for your insight,

  • Sorry, was already done very breathtaking in 2011 bij the British artist Tony Cragg, go Goolgle:
    “Dice Sculptures by Tony Cragg”

  • Is this about WHAT has gone into/been used to make the sculpture (painting/prints/art)
    or ABOUT the art itself ??????????????
    JUST because a piece is made with certain materials does not make for either good or great art. It is the vision, the statement underlying the piece that takes it beyond the common and \”the has been done so many many times before\” use of that subject matter.
    It is for the artist to go beyond.
    Material/media is just media. Fun for people to talk about but does not = great art.
    and dear readers please note: I did not say whether or not I liked what the above sculptor produced.
    thank you. …

  • maybe one should be done covered in condoms

  • How amazing!

  • very impressive, but why rocking?
