around the world in :56 seconds

When technology is combined with a conceptual vision that elevates the medium and the message, that’s breathtaking genius.

While in India this week and hearing many different languages, we’re reminded of the Tivoli radio exhibit at the Milan Salone this past April. The Babel Tower, was constructed of 934 Model One units as “bricks” and 16 NetWorks as “windows” playing live radio broadcasts from various points throughout the world—inlcuding LA, Brazil, and Egypt.

Thankfully it wasn’t just a one time exhibit. Due to its poplularity it was later reconstructed in London, Paris and Moscow. View the video for the experience.
