I can feel when the Ogoh-ogoh wakes up, because the spirits enter the body - you feel it. You feel the spirits when you’re making it.
Observing is an underrated role that journalists play. The fact that people know you’re watching means they will hopefully do the right thing.
This sort of information is going to allow us as a state to probably understand our visitors better than anywhere else in the world.
When I was a kid I always thought I was going to be the first astronaut to go to Mars, and I’ve always been captivated by antarctic sciences...

I want to encourage people who have dreams just to be brave and try to realise it. Becoming a successful artist — that's my dream, and now I'm on my way.
This timber has been under water for about thirty years. The timber itself is two, three, four hundred years old, and we’re actually pulling out Huon Pine that are a thousand years old.

They've never seen numbers like this when they're actually testing themselves in the practical laboratory class, so while they might have done this test before, they've never done it on an athlete of this calibre.
I hope that the experience of viewing my art also helps others to experience and process their emotions.
The themes of our show are actually quite dark in and of themselves. Not dark in the sense of 'scary', but dark in the sense of coming from a space that is sort of hidden and out of the light.
I've worked with victims of war crimes and crimes against humanity, victims of human rights abuses. Having the opportunity to help these people really doesn't feel like a job anymore.
