Miscommunication on the Tower of Babel

Arianna Guidi (Crossmedia Design): “During my studies in Enschede, communication was very important to me. I come from a different country with a different background, and have learnt to better express myself.


In my graduation project, Babel, I tried to find out how important words are, by purposefully creating miscommunication. I did this using various media: typography, audio, 3D and graphic methods.


As the story about the tower of Babel describes, the only way to reach God is by finding out how to communicate with one another. Only when we have experienced miscommunication can we understand the importance of words and rediscover communication.”
