KMI 1.0 (BAA_CZ02)

     
We use the story of the Tower of Babel as a metaphor of the present development of the global communication network on the principle of the universal computer language of nils and ones - the possible breaking down of the net may have the same consequences as the Biblical confusion of tongues.
The project mediates the experience of building the Tower of Babal, the process of transporting information as building material on pulleys which are commonly used on building sites.
The multimedia installation consist of:
7 electronic
pulleys, 2 modified wireless  cameras and TVs, 5 radios and  FM transmitters and  microcontroller
