“I think we’re all constantly struggling to see what’s right in front of us,”Von Sell shared of his inspiration. “Being glued to your phone certainly doesn’t help but it’s probably the human condition to begin with. I know that I’m often so busy with myself that I’m never actuallywithmyself. I’ve noticed that the more I obsess about myself the more distant I grow from myself. It’s a kind of trance, and I constantly have to remind myself to snap out of it, hence the consistent refrain: ‘wake up.'”
