Tower of Babel (#1) 1985
Plexiglas on metal studs, acrylic on canvas, speaker.
Visitor climbs narrow steps to see tiny painting of sky. Gilt
speaker repeats "What?" in artist's voice. The word
is sampled and quickly repeated through a digital echo chamber.
Over a 1-minute period of time, the word "what" degrades
to a simple clicking sound Silence...then cycle repeats.
This concludes the "Early Work" section.
