During the lockdown, I’ve been working in my studio in the backyard of my old house in Coburg. It’s full of old sculptures, models and materials I’ve collected. It’s a glorified shed underneath a huge Kurrajong tree that’s pushed the studio sideways upsetting the angles of the room. There’s a possum in the ceiling that’s active in the evening and scratches around. I’ve spent many hours alone here making work but now I’m teaching my students and meeting with other staff online in the studio. It feels like my worlds have collided and condensed into a single, now timeless, space.
