A lot of designers, the first thing you do is draw on paper to get the idea down. We thought of a pattern, then I made all these files of how big the carousel was, how it was installed with the motor, how it attached to the walls. I contacted a group called Guild; they are in Gowanus and have a 40-thousand-square-foot shop with everything—production, technology department, printing department, everything. I emailed them and they were up for it. I shared my stuff with them, and they were like, ‘Yeah, no problem. That’s easy to do.’ I was like, ‘Oh my god, you’re saving my life.’

"13 year-old Justin, I’ve come from the future to interrupt you at Tower Records purchasing one of your first ever compact discs with the news that eighteen years from now Dr. Dre will use the phrase ‘talk soon’ to end a conversation with the head of software engineering at Apple, a fellow employee. Enjoy."
"Oh and you should buy Apple stock instead of that CD."
