A testament to global sameness and affluenza induced conduct, the Babel Waste Capital up-cycles what the city
throws away. Styrofoam packaging is collected from the neighborhood and erected as a tower in a few short hours.
This sculpture represents an extension of a city reconstituted from its own refuse materials. Exhibited at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art with DJ Spooky and Terreform ONE as: "Of Water and Ice - A Concert of Compositions
Based on Water and Arctic Rhythms" in Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium. Also shown at New Museum, Ideas City
street fair: An installation made from discarded styrofoam rises in front of Raumlabor's Spacebuster, a mobile
inflatable pavilion commissioned by the Storefront for Art and Architecture.
