Richard Layzell – Notes from Wagga Wagga
 
Day 1: Monday 22 September 2003

Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga [a few miles outside the city, in rural New South Wales]

22 artists from all over Australia, 5 facilitators. As we hear more about our respective practices, I become bewitched by the possible conflict between being a facilitator here and being an artist. Give and take.

The day carefully paced until an un-planned meeting happens at 5pm. So the pre-planned meeting of facilitators over dinner looms larger. Energy levels. Two naps already.

The relationship between technology, practice, process and documentation is where we’re at.
Confidentiality discussed so widely [maybe I brought it up in the first place] that I’m forced to only refer to myself here, unless first agreed by others. But actually this sounds reasonable.

Relieved that there’s a strong desire to make things happen beyond the campus and into the city, a city of truck dealers, grog shops, hotels that advertise themselves as “great value, mate”, and an art gallery where we 5 give a public talk on Saturday.

I’m excited, anxious, exhausted from the journey, intrigued to locate ResCen within this project, haunted by memories of being a waiter in Lillehammer last month and of spending the day in Wormwood Scrubs prison last week.
Vivid recollections of the landscape around Berowra, the furthest northern suburb of Sydney [it looks the same here] where my parents lived in the 70s. I hear my mother's enthsuiastic descriptions of washing-drying and plant-growing conditions, her dislike of kookaburras. Everything was better for her here at first.

It’s that early first-full-day feeling of new-ness and wondering how it’s ever going to work. Don’t relish this feeling, but used to it being part of the inevitable life-cycle process of an event like this.
