Cobain said, “That is what I’m trying to provide in the service of the world, since it’s very lacking.” She went on to explain, “Like in the age of Kardashian, and that’s fine they specifically fill a role for a reason. But everything is so saturated and filtered and conceived.” Cobain said her goal in her work is to make reality real, ‘not some contrived piece of nonsense.’ Cobain said that in her opinion people have a huge thirst for reality in artistic endeavors. She said, “they want to see people for who they really are, all the messy bits included.”
