Featured at Grounds for Sculpture Museum (New Jersey), this installation references the story of the Tower of Babel. This myth, found in many cultures around the world, tells of humans building a tower to reach the heavens. Their ambition is quashed, and their tower struck down by an angry god. In referencing this story, Dykstra considers the structures upon which Western Society has been built. These structures seem permanent and immovable, but in situations of great uncertainty their precarity is highlighted. Contrary to the gods striking down these ambitious structures, these systems are threatened by their own poor construction. We sense this, yet we cling desperately to what we know. There is a tremendous amount of fear in considering the breakdown of these systems; but there is also a fragile hope. What new structures might we build to create a more equitable, sustainable future?
