1. Which came first – concept or location? How much does the location influence your creativity? Concept - but the location just seemed to work perfectly.
2. What was your role & who did you collaborate with? What roles did they play?
See last email for credits. Grimshaw and ourselves worked up the concept. Josh and Kat from Grimshaw undertook most of the fabrication and construction, which was a massive task for such a structure.

3. How did you come to be a lighting installation artist? Are you working on any projects not for Vivid, you’d like to share?
Lots - art collaborations with several artists around the country at the moment. Perth seems to be brimming with public art opportunities currently, with Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney still kicking on.
4. Where do you see future for independent lighting sculptures & installations taking you? Experimentation and inspiration for ourselves and the lighting design community, but at the same time, recognition for what light can create as a medium.
