hat movie dialog excerpt was from The Graduate (1967) and it was the mantra of that time that pointed to a lucrative future in plastics. It was a movie made more than four decades ago and now our daily existence relies greatly on plastics [...]
Nam June Paik was a pretty lucky guy. He was, for instance, able to move out of Korea at the age of 18, due to his family’s wealth, thus avoiding the Korean War.
