Worship in the machine age

For dOCUMENTA (13), Thomas Bayrle took over almost the entire lower level of documenta-Halle with his large-scale patterned wall relief Carmageddon consisting of modular cardboard elements, his oversized image of an aircraft Flugzeug made up of images of smaller identical airplanes and his roaring machines murmuring the chants of prayers.  Welcome to mass worship in the machine age.
