‘His retina is beleaguered with images’

'His retina is beleaguered with images'

“What of modern man’s scale of values? His retina is beleaguered with images (photographs, printed matter, street advertisements, Cinema) from morning to night.” 

Alvar Aalto, 1927

And now we’re beleaguered with shiny devices that blast such promotions into our eyes.

We all carry a piece of Times Square in our pocket.
