Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel is an embodiment of the idea that ideas can come from unusual combinations of words. A story, metaphor or reason was created as to when one might come across these words.

The result was that people would whisper words that have never been said and the words are captured by the wind and taken to the tower of babel.

The feature is self modifying as you can vote on which words you like and which ones you do not like. The words people vote for most rise to the top and the others sink into the ground and are no longer shown. Over ten thousand words have been whispered into the tower.

Utopia was created based on the combination, “Sasquatch Seeds”, found in the Tower of Babel.

Teaching at Sheridan, Dan Zen uses the power of combinations in creative exercises and has also made an offline game called STRETCH that plays with this concept.
