The Tower



Virtual Sculpture, WebGL, loop

The Tower is an exploration of hubris and chaos, movement and paralysis.

An architecture of oppression inspired by the myth of Babel, the tower operates through technocracy’s technical language and produces a reality of extraction, efficiency and productivity.
The tower is a sculpture of bodies locked in perpetual data mining,
transfixed in the temporal confinement of meta-time.

The tower is an exploration of time suspension, intended as an uncanny coexistence of presence and absence.

The false sense of progress that hides behind the constant, incessant growth, reveals a paralysis whose suspension and numbness has taken over the bodies,
but not over data.
