Confusion of Tonque
Foto, Digital Blyant og Pensel, A3, 2012,
Artist note: // Inspireret af historien om Babel og hvorfor mennesket har forskellige sprog. Historien findes i Første Mosebog, Book of Genesis.
Mennesket bliver for magtfuld i sin forening og Babel tårnet når næsten himlen. Skaberen føler sig nødsaget til at opdele mennesket i forskellige sprog, så de ikke kan forstå hinanden.
Denne opdeling bliver også kaldt : Confusion Of Tongues. //
“And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.“
