Beryl Korot discusses a recent work — "Babel: the 7 minute scroll" (2007) — which takes the form as both a large-scale print and an animated digital video. With pictographs that reference ancient Egypt and the biblical story of the Tower of Babel, Korot's work investigates the history of tools and technology, language and narrative.
