Simple is about nothing and everything important. The work is not a definition of who we are as a collective society, however Simple discusses parts of some, together. It is not a clarification of the human experience but a reflection of just being here, taking responsibility for ourselves and others. The work optimistically accepts the impossibility of knowing everything, with this acceptance becoming part of who we are. Simple tells us its “OK” and that’s enough.
