Context Ascribes Value

Context matters in the way that people recognize value. For example, a world-class classical musician performing in the street is unlikely to be recognized for their brilliance compared to performing in Carnegie Hall. When they are on the street, they are a street performer barely noticed by rushing commuters. When they are in a concert hall, they are in the context of classical performers compared to every other classical musician in the world.
