Chakra Disco Bouddha (butterfly nightclub) is composed of eight buddha heads with the figure of Mr. Propre, the consumerist icon of household products. These sculptures are filled with colored lights that swirls in their skulls, transforming them between nightclubs strobes to Buddhist mandalas. Egregorian Song, an album of 8 sacred songs with sinful words. The lyrics of this “sacred karaoke” are written solely in terms of brand names seen as elements of worship, rather than that of merchandise. These brand names are the only identical words, and together they form a new multinational language. Together, these songs present the concepts of materialism and globalization as a religion, or spirituality, called Egregorian. To sin is to make the ordinary sacred.
