The Great Gizmo in the Sky

“The man who changed the face of America had a gizmo, a gadget, a gimmick – in his hand, in his back pocket, across the saddle, on his hip, in the trailer, round his neck, on his head, deep in a hardened silo.”

— Reyner Banham, “The Great Gizmo” (1965)

As a kind of follow-up to Kazys Varnelis’ “Today We Collect Nothing”, which also found an interesting response here.
