australia trip - wired lab residency, blue mountains & bundeena

after 3 days in Norfolk tutoring on another nice Wildeye course alongside Chris Watson, followed by 3 flights over 26 hours, I've now arrived in Australia for my residency at The Wired Lab.

(qantas win a prize for playing stereolab as boarding music in Melbourne !)

flying in over mountains covered in early mists, cloud like cobwebs holding on & sliding down valleys, (listening to elizabeth fraser's new work) & contemplating the time i'll spend in australia.  Its a privilege indeed to have been invited here by Sarah & Dave at Wired Lab. I am constantly aware of how lucky I am & how much my work begins with the understanding of that.

I'm staying a night in Canberra - surely the quietest capital city in the world. I went for a short walk near my hotel & saw one person on the streets. I arrived early in the morning & intended to set out for a walk & to take some photos of some of the art deco architecture, however a quick nap somehow turned into a deeper sleep & I awoke after sunset. Perhaps tomorrow morning....

in the meantime here's some archival photos of canberra....
