BLURB

The first time I met her, I would not touch her the whole night. Only look at her. I talked to her, but she wouldn’t say a word. I already knew she was a goddess who would not need a man to feel valued, and when I was with her I felt joy that would only exist in other worlds. Roland Barthes wrote that she had “fallen from the sky” for a reason. The Citroën DS or “Déesse” is truly a goddess of new age design that is visually alien and uncomfortable, representing the future in the present. Similar to the abstraction in Giacomo Balla’s futurist “Velocity of an Automobile” that only made sense in the context of speed and dynamism, not in that of conventional representation. Futurism was an artistic vision that rejected the old, but who would have known that within a few decades the space race would enable the realization of that new world. That’s why we are speechless looking at the technological boom that brings the future in our lives. And it’s happening so fast we can’t even realize the future we dreamed about came already.
