NEW YORK - We worship gods of rock and now it's time to kneel before the gods of personal computing. This epic piece of original art was uncovered at Eyebeam Gallery during a walk through New York's Chelsea neighborhood, appropriately captured using Apple's Jesus phone.
"The Trinity" is painted on plexiglass then back lit for a dramatic stained glass effect featuring Linus Torvalds credited with creating the Linux Kernel, Microsoftie Bill Gates who's forced to share his esteemed place with Steve Ballmer and finally the mega-deity Steve Jobs who's immortalized holding the beloved iPhone.
The Mac power button symbol inserted as a halo behind Steve Jobs' head is a classic touch that will please the most devout Apple faithful. The depiction of Ballmer as an angelic being is perfectly sarcastic though it could have been true comedy if he was painted more accurately as a big chubby cherub baby.
Lit candles are always present near this divine shrine for proper prayer and reflection while visiting "The Trinity" up close and personal. Kneeling is optional.
This work was part of an installation called "Praying @ Home" imagined by Aaron Meyers & Jeff Crouse.
