Babel is Just a Name is based on research into language origin theories and is heavily influenced by the Tower of Babel narrative in the book of Genesis. The sculpture represents a foundation as the structure on which language has been built, layered with a “screen” and chalk “ruins” abstractly depicting the movement ofpeople, thought and the brittleness of words.
