Babel 2013 - Sycamore, glass & carbon fibre with bronze and textured glass.
The Tower of Babel in the bible was referred to as ‘the city and its tower’ It is said that everyone on earth spoke the same language. “People there sought to make bricks and build a city and a tower with its top in the sky, to make a name for themselves, so that they not be scattered over the world. God came down to look at the city and tower, and remarked that as one people with one language, nothing that they sought would be out of their reach. God went down and confounded their speech, so that they could not understand each other, and scattered them over the face of the earth, and they stopped building the city.”
The result was; The confusion of tongues the initial fragmentation of human languages.
Whilst Marc’s piece has no religious meaning or based on a religious belief, it does have a strong narrative representing the achievements of the human race, even with cultural, religious and language barriers. The cabinet, which follows on from Mollusque and Nautilus, gets its inspiration for shape from shell structures. The doors overlap; representing unity; the coming together of people.
