The window, composed of translucent green computer-circuit-boards, acts as a visually foreign body in the architecture of the church: creating a contrast to the sacred space. The stained glass window, formerly used for depicting religious legends, is replaced by a display of technology, an assemblage of electronic circuits. From the circuit-board window computer noise invades the church: a clicking sound, long and high-pitched scratching, near-silent rattling, and sonorous humming. Mouse, printer, keyboard, and cooling fans are auditive props for this staging of computer technology.
