Historical Context:
"Imagination is the root of all innovation; without it, our lives would be mundane and predictable. When manipulated, it has the power to form ideas and thoughts that add color to an otherwise black and white world. Imagination is not a skill, but an innate state of consciousness that brings about endless possibilities. Despite these illustrious qualities, imagination is often overlooked, getting lost in daily routines and hectic schedules...Each print in this series portrays imagination in some form of distress. It is my hope that as individuals, we can help keep imagination alive be cherishing it and utilizing it in our everyday lives. " -Ellen Yee
