A Statement from Oliver:

"This was written on 9 September 1999 in Adelaide South Australia at a time when I was still finding my way as a newly arrived immigrant, saying goodbye to former lovers and life long friends in my country of birth, and looking for new connections. The piece seeks to capture the feelings of walking a tightrope between the joys of aloneness and the sorrows of loneliness in an interregnum. Perhaps imagination fueled by desire offers the way through.

Desire is my compass, the body my GPS, warm data my gyroscope.

I acknowledge the Kaurna meyunna traditional custodians of the lands now referred to as Adelaide that inspired and where this piece was written. I pay respects to their elders, past, present and emerging."
