People have various ways to interpret things that they see around them. Artist Marlies Romberg, a recent grad of the Utrecht School of Arts compares the fast moving, ever buzzing digital world with the very personal real world and highlights on the constant thinning of the borders between the two. She is so much influenced by the rapid takeover of the digital world that she blends the two worlds into one; naming it as the Dear Diary 1.0. This is what we see here as a desk comprising of a computer attachment and a laser etched keyboard. Her statement “the digital world is personal but not private at all” complements her creation.
She has also designed an accessory for Dear Diary 1.0 which is a USB drive named Topsecret. This beautiful form is a porcelain and silicone USB stick that looks like the very place you would store your secrets and personal information bound by a seal so that none could read it.
