New Babel

This is a teaser preview of a forthcoming augmented reality (like virtual reality, but combined with actual visibly real elements and viewed via a handheld device such as a mobile phone or tablet) installation intended for Union Square Park, NYC for October 2019. More information & images to follow. Below is a simulation of the piece inserted into Google Earth 3D view. My daughter, Lizzie, created the tower (Tower of Knowledge) in Fusion 360, btw, based on my original drawing. The globe hovering (rotating) above the tower is textured with the painting we used on my wife's book, A New Global Agenda. In the final version, the tower will not have the golden texture seen below, but a painted one.
