New Babel

A project about balance, respect, equality, diversity, unity, negative / positive space, same same but different, to be continued...

The Tower of Babel narrative in Genesis 11:1–9 is an origin myth meant to explain why the world's peoples speak different languages.

According to the story, a united human race in the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language build a tower tall enough to reach heaven. God, observing their tower, confounds their speech so that they can no longer understand each other, and scatters them around the world. (Paraphrased from Wikipedia to reduce text size)

Visually the entire space is divided 50/50 : Black/White. Different, yet equal in shape, size and importance.
