"In this work I try to understand the continued and constant self-immolations that are taking place in Tibet. I have found my mind increasingly occupied by these controversial acts. Both courageous and tragic, self-immolations challenge us, as witnesses, to either take action or to practice indifference. Consequently, these acts force us to define and redefine our individual and collective strengths/weaknesses based on our responses. How we respond defines not only myself, but also the world we live in." - Tenzing RIgdol
