Tower of Babel...



My first sighting of Dubai was, of course, the Burj Dubai. Expected to be completed sometime next year, it will be the tallest building in the world by far. After hearing all the talk, it was even more than what I expected... it was rather awesome... otherworldly... unreal... kind of heavenly, but at the same time, something sinister... like this brave new world was somehow trying to defy the laws of gravity... 'defying the gods' one might even say and I thought right away of the Tower of Babel.

The exhibition opening at the Opera Gallery DUBAI was almost equally awesome! I came to Dubai to check it out for an exhibition that we hope to put together in the next few months... this could really be an excellent opportunity...
