“I was one of those people who (was) slightly greedy for experience. I would just do anything. So I played a lot of instruments, travelled around with a lot of orchestras, painted a lot of pictures, made things in glass windows, carved wood, played the clarinet, went travelling, tried to be hungry and eat everything. I guess the art form I was developing was ‘living’. I was obsessed with author D. H. Lawrence when I was a teenager. The blurb on the back of one of his biographies was, ‘D. H. Lawrence spent most of his short life living.’ So I spent until age 25 just cultivating the art of living. Then I looked for something that might be just as close to ‘living’ as possible but would eventually possibly pay. And that turned out to be set design.”
