Is it possible to create site-specific work for the Internet? Especially since a Web site is essentially an ephemeral, abstract construct? Simon Biggs' "Babel" is an impressionistic data browser that confronts these issues head on. Using the Dewey Decimal system as a means to navigate the Internet and (essentially numerical code), "Babel" creates a shared 3-D data space (among all who log onto the site simultaneously) that disintegrates into an indecipherable landscape. Ultimately, the jumble of colorful numbers serves as a poetic metaphor for the endless amounts of information available online.
