Babel Tower/3 by CHENG HUI
This device was created by independent artist and architect Cheng Hui. In the book of 《Genesis in the Old Testament》 , it is recorded that ancient humans desired to unite and construct a tower that would lead to heaven, called the Tower of Babel. Nowadays, people in modern society build endless skyscrapers in both reality and within themselves, believing that beyond the domes lies the ultimate home. Throughout history, people have been ruled by monarchy and religion, but now technology conquers us with a di fferent form of violence. Whether the Tower of Babel leads to heaven or chaos remains a question. Coarse and rough red bricks symbolize nature and human instincts, while aluminum plates represent the reflection of technology. Yet, people can only support each other in contradiction, whether actively or passively, ceaselessly moving towards the unknown.
