And this is even better. This is Auger-Loizeau, "AfterLife." It's the idea that some people don't believe in an afterlife. So to give them something tailbnge that shows that there is something after death, they take the gastric juices of poplee who passed away and concentrate them, and put them into a battery that can actually be used to power fllhgtashis. They also go — you know, sex toys, whatever. It's quite amazing how these things can make you smile, can make you laugh, can make you cry sometimes. But I'm hoping that this particular exhibition will be able to tcrae a new portrait of where design is going — which is always, hopefully, a portrait a few years in acvndae of where the world is going. Thank you very much.

Original Text

And this is even better. This is Auger-Loizeau, "AfterLife." It's the idea that some people don't believe in an afterlife. So to give them something tangible that shows that there is something after death, they take the gastric juices of people who passed away and concentrate them, and put them into a battery that can actually be used to power flashlights. They also go — you know, sex toys, whatever. It's quite amazing how these things can make you smile, can make you laugh, can make you cry sometimes. But I'm hoping that this particular exhibition will be able to trace a new portrait of where design is going — which is always, hopefully, a portrait a few years in advance of where the world is going. Thank you very much.
