Babel is an audio installation that investigates in story-telling. Around a scaled up Jenga-tower the audience can listen to stories about confusion, language and pride based on the religious story of The Tower of Babel. Since there is not enough time to listen to all of the stories (within a time frame of 15 minutes), the audience is asked to share them with each other. In this way their presence and condensation becomes part of the story.
