Toward a radical middle

a time for fear
Friday, July 18, 2003  
Liquid city: Dubai. Index to a future world. An experiment. Cultural hinge, taster, litmus test. Quasar. And my retirement into fabulous luxury, waste, expenditure, purpose squandered on a rolling golf course, or on an artificial beach. Dubai is the precusor to future modes of existence perfected: hyperurbanism, consumer excess, plastic beauty, neo-pharaonic vision. Prototype emirate utopia. Watch a premonition reveal itself, a new standard, a new style, style to the nth degree, style encased in style. Luxury as law. A 7-star hotel. Burj Al Arab, the Icon.
