008: Big themes and discipline with Kirstin Berg

Kirstin Berg creates immersive environments by combining and manipulating unconventional materials such as fire ash, bush debris and hard rubbish into sculptures and wall works. Her work revolves around her concern for environmental and human crisis and the redemption found in transforming our losses.

In this episode we discuss the value of structure and protecting your studio time to help your productivity.  Plus the importance of support networks, self criticism, self care and setting your own pace.
