Thanks guys.
I was motivated by how I could portray something
incredibly complicated and controversial by an image that wouldn't be
"loaded" with emotion and bias. Everyone can draw their own conclusions.

The helicopter seems a perfect image...technological, fast...not rooted to a place but definitely reflective of an ideology that relies on ingenuity and transformation.
It is a vehicle- a numerous definitions.

The mosque is stabile, centered, linked to a religion, and to many of us, a symbol of difference (the other) and exoticism.
The building is earth-bound but a representation of the spiritual.
Both images are remarkably similar.
