Babel Waste Capital Tower
Babel Waste Capital is a testament to global sameness and global conduct. Extraterrestrials looking at us from outer space trying to decide what we produce could only come to a single conclusion: refuse. New York City disposes of 38,000 tons of waste per day. The Babel Waste Capital rethinks and upcycles what the city throws away. Styrofoam packaging is collected from the neighborhood and erected as a tower. This sculpture represents an extension of a city reconstituted from its own refuse materials. The future makes no distinction between waste and supply.
