Give Me Strength…

I’ve ranted on about Philippe Starck before in this blog. He does come up with the most pretentious shite when describing his work on a depressingly regular basis. The latest example is that LaCie, makers of external hard drives, have just paid Monsieur Starck to design some housing for a new series of drives. And according to Monsieur Starck:
"Technological genius explodes exponentially, each time with incredible power whose limits are yet to be known. The power remains, never abating, symbolically characterized by the sculptural magma that one attempts to cleave, to master within this geometrically perfect strongbox. A symbol of strength mastered, of freedom guided, of incandescent magma heeding to the form of its cast. The interpretation is free. But the mystery remains."
Gawd, give me strength…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
