  2. Intuitions and insights 3. Freeflow  
  Allowing structures from past and recent works to fade in, like Twitch, Hooray [1980] and Architecture of Belief [this year]. A possible conceptual link between the Wagga bridge sequence and the story of Elenora's Falcon [the working title used in publicity]. Overwhelming memories of my mother's letters when they first moved to Australia, as I take the ferry from Balmain. I was at art school in London. There's a ferry that leaves from Circular Quay to Kirribilli, North Sydney and Neutral Bay. This is the one she took to work. Shall I take it? Too much. Take the one to Mosman instead. Melancholia doesn't lift. Go back. Maybe I could use some of this autobiographical material in Perth.
Film two five-minute sequences of myself sitting at a cafe table with backdrop of the Opera House, then the Harbour Bridge, with these ferries continually passing by. I don't do much, but feel like I'm performing. Could talk over this material. Better to have it than not. Begin the hard thinking about the performance. Everything is up for grabs.
Visit one conceptual hub of TPS2, Performance Space in Redfern. Michelle Outram shows me round and then we go out for a smoked turkey salad sandwich and talk about the two weeks in Wagga Wagga. London does not have an equivalent to Performance Space – an improvisatory informal artist-centred venue/workshop/gallery. New York does. It feels like home. This meeting is another evolution of how TPS2 lives on, perspectives already shifting after two days. Traces and fragments.
