...cares, interests, passions? I care about, am interested in, and have a passion for: people, society, humanity. The demands of urban society and our daily routines often take us away from some of the most beautiful experiences we can have as intelligent beings in this life. I think how we take care of each other is one of those beautiful experiences we have. I'd like to figure out how you can conjure up compassion in at least one person for their fellow man. I'd like to design a message without the message...to create a visual and auditory experience. I'd like to do something focused as an individual, that is meant for a larger group. Because as creators we need to take responsibility for what we contribute to our chosen field...for adding to the social consciousness; for that which may become naturalized for the viewership over time.
