In one of a series of short documentaries about artists in schools in Tasmania, multi-disciplinary artist, Selena De Carvalho. is depicted walking among the grounds of a senior college and pondering purposefully at a cafeteria table.
The catalyst for . applying for the AIR [Artist in Residence] program ... is just the opportunity to step inside an institution and bring my creative life into that space.
(De Carilalho in Mark & Tom, 2014b)
In contrast to conventional perceptions of artists-in-residence as expert visitors charged with instructing and mentoring students, De Carvalho's intention was to both bring and derive creativity from the school environment. She describes her individual practice and motivation for working, while the visual focus remains on her connectedness with the surroundings, her artmaking and the students.
