Tower of Babel   Church Form   Synagogue Form

Tower of Babel is a 3-Dimensional interactive book that challenges viewers to build a single stable structure by stacking paper constructions of churches, synagogues, and mosques between layers of text cards. The intentionally frustrating process raises metaphorical questions about religious competition.
