Throne of Social Destruction

Architecture et Mechanismes

“My throne is self-sufficient. It is progressively rendering the function of spaces obsolete, eliminating my need for them to perform my daily acts, and increasingly disconnecting me from people and events. My throne foreshadows an even more progressed culture of total distraction, complete absence of physical interaction and reckless addiction to instant gratification. My throne is a Throne of Social Destruction.”
