The Tower of Babel is a research project of the parliamentary buildings of all nation states in the United Nations. The Greek artist Alexis Fidetzis collected online information and images with the intent to establish a relationship between the physical and digital presence of the parliaments. A parallel internet project enabled a wide range of artistic works to be created, which, as individual blocks, set up the Babylonian Tower on the World Wide Web. More than 100 artists from 27 countries have participated.
The result is a book about both project parts with the appearance of an encyclopedia.
