E-Quake is an object connected to the Internet with a mythological figure on top of an organic platform that reacts every time there is an earthquake. The object also has a web server hosting a webpage.
This work is inspired by the synthesis and modeled spirituality of nowadays. This new era of excess of false and non-productive information, reaches us and we aint't got time to conlusion or meditate about it. This way, this excess of religious, astrological and pseudo-scientific information creates a kind of disorganization resulting in vague conclusions about our spirituality, accompanied by anxiety and confussion. This is kown as information overload.
In times near death, sickness, or in presence of a natural disasters, human beings are more prone to believe or pray to the gods. An earthquake was chosen because it is known earth movements creates a kind of reality absurd to people.
The web-page hosted by the object shows six links of pages about this kind of non-productive information. Between them, there is one new about a vision of a seven years old girl about having earthquakes all over Brazil, which created panic in several believers.
