Do As The Romans Do
GETTING TO KNOW THE LOCALS & RESEARCH
This residency led me to do things differently. I downed tools and said goodbye to the tiger
mosquitoes (who incidentally do not warn you theyare coming as they are mute little buggers).
I spent time walking, talking to locals and
researching. Immersing myself in the local
culture (i.e daily Proseccos at Artu Bar) brought me new and interesting discussions on local mythology.
I was like a giraffe in a miniature bed and this tricky number also liked to skid across the room when I got in of a night. Apart from sleep deprivation and mosquitoes, I could work anywhere in the world. The universal language
of hand gesticulation helps to get by.
