About the gaping hole between what humans want and what the world has to offer
In a time when perfection is the norm and we are responsible for our own success, the issue of discomfort is more relevant than ever. While society often shuns discomfort, many artists embrace it: the moment between knowing and not knowing leaves room for being human.
