Skin has become inadequate in interfacing with reality. Technology has become the body's new membrane of existence.
Nam June Paik
The future is now.
Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong human element to keep modesty and natural life.
Nam June Paik
