Babel is an animated video by Baltimore City artist Kelley Bell. The soundtrack features the song Many Horses from For Stars and Atoms, an album by the excellent band Yeveto. Babel takes advantage of David M. Brown Planetarium's domed ceiling to present a 5-minute tour of the iconic structures and institutions that boast this architectural feature, placing viewers beneath the oculus at Rome's Pantheon; gazing up at the gorgeous lattices of Tilla Kari Madrasa in Uzbekistan, and our own nation's Capitol Building, to name a few.
