A Short History of Windows

Year 1: We stitch banana leaves into panes. Installation is relatively easy, but it’s hard to look through. Year 10: We leave our windows unpaned. The breeze is nice. Year 100: Someone invents glass. Year 1,000: We build numerous frames and fill them with sheets of glass. Our alarmists warn of an impending epidemic of cuts. Year 10,000: A baseball crashes through a window. Year 100,000: We sit behind large picture windows and imagine what it might be like to live in the world. Year 1,000,000: The art of graffiti beckons. We spray paint all the windows of the world.
