This chapter explores the team’s experience of the uncertain months and develops two analyses: the forms of creative labour and theological commitment that filled the team’s waiting. Ark Encounter is a project of Answers in Genesis (AiG), a creationist ministry based in northern Kentucky, just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. The opening of Ark Encounter dramatically marked AiG’s cultural and economic power, but this structurally induced waiting marks how the process was always contingent on the ministry being an actor subject to the requirements and timelines of state regulation. The creative team’s labour was fundamentally altered by the fundraising delay. Initially, they were tasked with designing the entire park – the ark and Babel replica. The creative team understands Ark Encounter in much the same way: not as a fulfilment of prophecy, but as a re-enactment of Christian truth.
