Burn Babylon Down

Christianity has often been used as a battlecry, as a call-to-arms, as a weapon. For me, that feels quite antithetical to Jesus’ message of love and humility. This piece, created in response to a song dropped by Kings Kaleidoscope (W.D.Y.K.A.G.), captures the intensity within. I feel that it also parallels the song’s message of Western Christianity’s obsession with the superficial and its neglect of the marginalized.

I used a combination of Photoshop and After Effects to create the scene.
