A concrete jungle may be the best place to hide out if you do not wish to have any actual, meaningful contact with other members of your species. Day after day, legions of urban dwellers ride little box-like elevators to get to their little box-like apartments and live out their little box-like existences. They avert their eyes in the corridors, tremble at the mere possibility of a cheery "hello!"; terrified of a beaming neighbor who might actually want to stop and chat. Liu Dao's Babylonian towers stand in a somber, lyrical face-off symbolic of our growing mutual alienation amidst the soaring heights of progress and development. [Loo Ching Ling 吕晶琳]
