Excerpt from the interview

Félix de la Concha video- and audio-taped his portrait sessions. A brief split-screen excerpt appears below, presenting the sitter as well as the ongoing work of the artist.

Transcription: "We've taken all the places kids can learn limits away from them and set them for them, and I don't think that's right. I think that a kid has to learn to experiment to learn what their own limits are and they can't just be imposed on them all the time. We've taken a lot of childhood away from kids by all the changes we've made on everything they do."
