[M] Dudeck invented a queer religion called The Religion Virus. It has been performed, screened, and exhibited now in 25 countries worldwide, and though the religious fiction is itself grounded in performative iterations, it is through the digital that the virus has spread, and activated religious imaginations in various nodes throughout the Global Village. It is through the world-wide-web that my practise replicates and inseminates, through social media and the Google Archives where pilgrims may follow the iCons. It is through my avatar that my audience encounters my ongoing presence, a sculpted artificial presence, a digital ceremonial performance. The Temple of Artifice is thus dedicated to the sacralised invention and construction of Artifice through digital memes, towards a broader exploration of Belief in the Age of Post-Truth.
