Babel

 

When visiting Lille, we stumbled across this Babel exhibit that focused on the overproduction and destruction of civilization.  It was by far the most thought provoking exhibit I have been to. Each piece really spoke in a new voice about our rapidly modernizing world. Individually each work was so haunting and poetic that when curated it was pure magic.  HERE you can find out more information about the exhibit. If you find yourself in the area, go.

    I love seeing the similarities in structure for the ceiling web for lack of the architectural term in so many venues. Very interesting tower O’ books. Is that architectural or art? Can you separate them? Should you ask the French professors? I appreciate your summary.

  2. I really like these pictures the most. I would love to see this place.
