Theodoros Bargiotas: THE DIGITAL MESSIAH
Statement: In the near future all digital data is uploaded onto the MeatCloud, a soft disk fabricated from DNA. Everything anyone has ever sent, received, uploaded, download is stored in this carnal Pandora’s Box and within lives the Digital Messiah, the virtual gatekeeper of humanity’s collective digitized soul. He wanders through the gene desert collecting, organizing and perpetuating all the stories ever told. He is the binary storyteller and the species’ only hope of remembering what it feels like to be human, to be part of a Story. In order to believe that you are human, in order to be saved, you must believe in Him and his Stories.”
