Technology is moving the present rapidly into the future. From films to the Internet, medium after medium is joining with others to create a richer, more integrated experience. Kitchens (and chefs) once were invisible to diners, a mystery behind sheltering white walls and stainless steel counters.
Today these once solid walls and gleaming counters are becoming more and more transparent, which if addressed creatively, can be a marvelous thing. Just consider the wonder of "A Day Made of Glass" as envisioned by Corning:
Transparency, whether crafted of glass or dots per inch (dpi), can widen our the world and remind us all that in this modern era we are all connected to the past, the present and especially to the future and to each other.
