The wildlife; native, agricultural and introduced. The peace and quiet. It’s such a tranquil space, perfect for thinking, making, reflecting. I instantly felt at home. The abundance of wonderful people I got to meet. The ability to spend time in a similar agricultural setting to where I grew up, but somehow less harsh and on a smaller, more relatable scale. [I learnt] to trust my artistic choices and use of language. There’s a difference between always learning and always feeling like you’re trying to catch up to others. [I also learnt] that every idea will be relevant for someone.
