Leonora Carrington and the House of Fear - a 1992 BBC documentary now on YouTube
"Two matters may here be of special concern to the conscientious designer and may make him stop and think or, perhaps, think and stop. The first is that with his help another object will be added to the many that are already taking our attention and our care, another object to distract us. (Our households contain hundreds of objects.) The second is that by trying to give this object its best possible shape, by trying to make it as timeless as possible—that is, not dictated by short-lived fashion—and by finding for it a form as anonymous as possible—that is, a form unburdened by dominantly individual traits of the planner—the designer finds himself in direct conflict with the economic pattern of our time."

"Today such matters as, for instance, that the finished object be photogenic, can influence designing. In a time that depends greatly for success upon photographic reproduction, a consideration of this sort—in itself surely beside the point—can become a factor that may have to be taken into account."
