‘We’ve always been more associated with image, and our physical work,’ he says of Ex Machina, the company he founded 15 years ago. ‘We have always been as much fascinated by text, music and voice, but I guess because our visual sense is stronger, it kind of eclipses sound in the work.

malaise

In a nation that was proud of hard work, strong families, close-knit communities, and our faith in God, too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption. Human identity is no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns. But we’ve discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our longing for meaning.

Jimmy Carter, 1979
