“Technology won’t take control as long as man can misuse it.”
Erkki Kurenniemi – Dawn of Dimi 2002

I bought the Dawn Of Dimi DVD documentary about Errki Kurenniemi when it came out, in 2002, and i’ve only just got round to watching it, it’s 2011.
Fascinating doc anyway, the man is clearly an amazing character and the insturments he has built are really interesting.
Enough words have been written about him elsewhere, so i’m not going to go on about him at the moment, i need to get to work…
here’s some links anyway:
