שכינה מתוך המכונה / Shechina ex machina is an artistic installation about an exiled spirit manifesting herself in a piece of obsolete technology, desperately trying to reach man who stays preoccupied with postmodern capitalist shenanigans. (work in progress – v.0.1)

According to jewish teachings, Shechina is the feminine majestic presence or manifestation of God which has descended to dwell among men. As the Israelites became exiled the Shechina came with them. Her manifestations remind men to constantly improve themselves and humankind and therefore seek reunification with God.
