"I don’t know if this is how you be a person." -Roger
Human nature has a sensory basis; in our artistic work we try to articulate the tuned character of the human response to the world. The articulated attunement of the arts enables them to be carriers of the sovereign life utterances, those fundamental expressions of compassion and trust that open us to the world and to others. There is thus a necessity of form, and ethical demand to take care of the life we hold in our hands by shaping it in poetic openness. The arts are thus seen not only in relationship to beauty but also to truth.
—Stephen and Ellen Levine
