Im often asked why we are located here at the end of a peninsula at the far end of the land, and how can we survive so far from the city? I don't think Im alone in searching for a moments peace from the frenzied pulse of 21st century civilisation, and wondering why our society has become ever disconnected from our natural surroundings and arguably in turn our inner selves. We are a part of a greater whole. How can disconnection create anything other than crisis? Effects of which can be witnessed far and wide. Here (for me) those concerns quieten a little, the inner beat quickens and the drum beats differently, but nowhere is immune to change. We are human after all.
I still believe, despite a confused state of affairs, that art, when unguarded, offers the potential to join up the dots of why we are here, where we have been and where we might be going. Offering an incomparable insight in to the human condition and our place in the world and who knows, beyond that, the universe.
