What exactly is it that happens when you click the ‘submit’ button in a browser? Will a factory worker be set to action in distant land? Will a power outage be caused in a small town near a datacenter? Will the global economies be affected? There is so much power in the action of a 'click', to move people, money, mountains, materials, art. The piece raises issues around digital labour, post-digital and digital materialism themes, as well as more broad discussions about curating and contextualising ‘cultural objects’, how they are designed and fabricated.

My Holy Nacho is a durational, transactional and transnational ritual that has been underway since 2014. It exists as an exchange between two people – Jamie Allen and Bernhard Garnicnig – who enjoy misunderstanding one another, using the gaps in communications via electronic media to create an artwork. For My Holy Nacho, a single object is sent to different manufacturers and workshops to have various ‘processes’ applied to it. Each process is chosen, in secret and in turn, by the collaborating artists. Resulting in a sculptural object, the work is built from broken transmissions and mistranslations that occur online — even the title of the work is the result of a misunderstanding: A mis­hearing of the name Moholy­ Nagy; a mumbly mispronunciation in a Canadian accent to an Austrian not­-so­-native speaker.
