I like broken things a lot. If time, money and space were on my side, I would probably buy two of everything. One to keep and one to break.
Technology is especially good when it’s broken, and I think it’s for two reasons. Because it’s good to expose the guts of a thing, to gain an understanding, however shallow, of the components and how it works. And because it creates opportunities. Bits of fragmented or shattered logic suddenly re-aligning to make something new and surprisingly beautiful.
Like Michael Tompert and Paul Fairchild’s destroyed Apple products.
Or Silvio Lorusso and Sebastian Schmieg’s broken Kindle screens.
So, yeah. I might start putting up more links to broken stuff.
