tokyo: the GodBox has landed

In a city ruled by neon it is a strange and tempting sight when a glowing box suddenly appears outside a shopping centre and invites you to touch it, the word MYLORD sits proudly on the corner of the box as the lights pulse and respond to your touch

is this God?

No, it isn't

and its actually been there since 2007 so i don't know how we managed to miss it for something like three nights in a row

it is an interactive piece of art that sits outside the MYLORD shopping precinct in Shinjuku and has a number of light cycle displays that respond to human contact

and also makes a very pretty picture, don't ya think?
