"I always had the attitude towards technology that the more intimate you are with the tools that you get, the more you can tell your story."
Happy birthday today to pioneering video artist, Beryl Korot. Seen here is the artist’s work, Babel: the 7 minute scroll (2007). The work—produced as both a single channel video and a large-scale print—references the biblical story of the Tower of Babel.
