The Repository of The Eternal Now

Robert Ware's graduate of last year from the Architecture department - The Repository of The Eternal Now. Sadly unsearchable, it took me a good 20 minutes in the library archives to dig this one out. It's quite a fascinating study of a direct merger between religion, economics and technology. The church invest in the markets and under fear of attack, continues the line of traditional religious architecture in constructing it's data into huge, imposing monoliths that represent it's glory and wealth.

Ware makes the data that represents wealth tangible; again a long-established disposition towards showy constructions of power and muscle flexing on the part of the Roman church. It's interesting to consider that the church might become an economic power that represents and protects it's data in huge monoliths to a new sort of power.
