The insanity of the modern world is inherent from the very beginning and the Babylon Tower is its symbol: from the Babylon Tower to Sarajevo, from imaginary architectures to the unrealized designs by architect Jože Plečnik. In this video, the space represented by the two dimensional image intertwines with the spaces of computer animation: the space of an image confronting digital spaces which are constantly transforming, reaching into different time perspectives. The images from Lang's film Metropolis were a vision of the future, but here they suddenly become images outside of time and space.
