"As an artist living comfortably on the edge of the Pacific, seemingly miles away from the troubled parts of the world, I feel fortunate and safe. The media brings to me everyday stories of displaced populations and war: violence in the home, especially towards women and children, violence towards animals and the neglect of our environment and the list goes on. Do these endless news streams make us all estranged, passive, and numb?"
