"Over the past 20 years, I have noticed that the most flexible, dynamic, inquisitive minds among my students have been industrial design majors. Industrial designers are bracingly free of ideology and cant. The industrial designer is trained to be a clear-eyed observer of the commercial world - which, like it or not, is modern reality."
"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works."Camille Paglia on Steve Jobs
"You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality."Camille Paglia on Walt Disney

"A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."Camille Paglia on Antoine de Saint-Exupery
"Sometimes I can't figure designers out. It's as if they flunked human anatomy."Camille Paglia on Erma Bombeck

No major figure of profound influence has emerged in painting or sculpture since the waning of Pop Art and the birth of Minimalism in the early 1970s."
"The 1990s, after the reign of terror of academic vandalism, will be a decade of restoration: restoration of meaning, value, beauty, pleasure, and emotion to art and restoration of art to its audience."
