Building a Tower to Frame Plastic Waste

Sari Nordman

The video documents the making of an interdisciplinary installation Tower. Tower reflects on climate change and the biblical story of the Tower of Babel - a story of greed and the value of cultural differences. Combining sculpture, video, archiving and community participation, the work highlights interviews of people of diverse backgrounds sharing their personal experiences with climate change. The stories transcribed in English are available as an additional attachment.
