Travelling between 'studios'

July 11, 2019 1 min read

Sourcing Utopia artwork is always an adventure, and comes with many challenges. One of which is the travel.

It is located in a remote area of Central Australia with mostly dirt roads that are unmarked and ungraded. Communities are situated 30-60 min drives apart.

 

Wet roads at Utopia

On a recent visit the roads were became so muddy and slippery the further north we went that one road was impassable. It was flooded from side to side and as far up the road as we could see.

There were tyre tracks leading into the bush on the left, indicating it had been wet like this for awhile and passers-by had made many arbitrary routes just to get through.

We watched as a single sedan come through the bush unimpeded (our timing was impeccable as these roads are not heavily trafficked) and it was enough to lift our confidence. We took the challenge.

Once we starteddown that track, we just had to power through and hope for the best.
