Babble is an artist's book that examines memory and language, and how one can be used to lock the other away. By opening this work and unstacking the boxes, the viewer can witness the artist's attempts to excavate early memories that have been compartmentalized for safekeeping. A play on the Tower of Babel, it alludes to the power of language, and how it can be used either to create entry points for communication, or as a means of concealment for those who don't speak it.
