The quotations are greater than politics or this election. They are about humanity. As a civilization we are losing our connection with our humanity. Somebody who isn’t brave enough will lie. We need to look at what generosity is as express by our candidates and whether they are prepared to meet the truth and whether they going to be brave. If I tell you what’s really going on will I lose the election? The person who speaks the truth is the one we don’t want. Not only politicians, but anybody can speak the truth. If you speak the truth, people will respect where you’re coming from. We want truth and generosity. but no one ever talks about those two things.

Because of the bipartisan nature of our system I think the largest thing missing in American politics is empathy. Empathy and understanding can only come through conversations and shared experiences. So, how do those conversations start? With this project we are encouraging this vessel to be a means of self expression. We know that this project will provide an opportunity to explain what these special images are and provide a platform for constructive discourse.

I think we are living in a terrifying time. I was told to trust the system. Unfortunately, I am incredibly impatient, and the way the system was set up to function was in a painfully slow manner. So, here we are in 2016 in a pivotal time for human rights and our relationship to the rest of the world and the environment. I think having a political voice goes beyond your involvement at the polls. Outside of voting, the political system is ultimately shaped by a cultural understanding of what is good for the future of our country.
