The Library of Babel

Inspired by The Library of Babel, I created a small book and a stop-motion animation. This book is formed by 8 pages, 4 groups of typography collage and photo collage, which are poem, costume, etiquette and festival. I intended to used these 4 pieces to talk about culture castration issues in my country.

We once owned so many priceless treasure, but we lost them all. We lost the rhythm of poem, so poems become words. We give away traditional costume and go for “modern fashion”. We don’t know those old manners anymore, we smile and shake hands. We celebrate ignorance and say “we develop with times”.
