Babel questions the impact of aggressive urbanization on the quality of life of the individual by destabilizing the apparent order of the urban landscape.
This project criticizes a society compulsively obsessed with progress, speeding towards a negative utopia where humans are becoming a disembodied collective entrapped in more and more confined spaces. Cities scaling higher and higher in the name of social interests, which inevitably affects the life of the individual.
The urban structure is designed so as to foster consumption and production needed for the continuous elevation of the metropolis.
This series is obtained with a medium format camera through the control use of long shutter times and layering sequences of different exposures.
Babel aims to reduce the urban landscape into obscure forms, revealing the hidden anxieties imbedded in the proliferating metropolis.
