“In the late 20th century we live in a visual culture that tells us how to look rather than how to feel, and the predominant influence on behaviour—the film—is dominated by one-dimensional examples of America’s inability to deal with moral complexity. But perhaps we can’t avoid being someone else when it seems there’s no such thing as an authentic response left; when every situation and conceivably extreme emotional state has become so heavily mediated that you begin to wonder whether you really feel the way you think you do.”  James Roberts • Frieze
