Historical Context:
"I make work that comments on social and psychological inhibitions. I am interested in the disparity between human potential and human action. In my observations I rarely find people utilizing all their talents, realizing a tenth of their potential, or recognizing their own beauty I see an entire society perpetuation generations of fatalism and skepticism." -Joel Addis
