Babel is much more than cold empty grey buildings. It´s the empire of solitary confinement. Paradoxically, living the moment of the greatest technological development in history to communicate with each other, it is precisely when we are most isolated. Babel is the territory of misinformation and confusion due to the overabundance and the sum of spurious interests, the creation of fake news, and, especially, the absence of critical thinking and philosophy. A universe of interests where People become useful and essential for big data business and happen to be handled by the almighty mathematical algorithms.
Babel relates us to biblical passages where the god of technology, politics, religions, culture, and the economy confused the man who daydreamed of being God. It speaks to us of the confusion of modern man, of our disorientation, and of the defenselessness of ourselves, because there is no greatest loneliness than missing oneself than walking without the presence of our own shadow.
