 Wendell Berry, renowned American poet and essayist, has been a great inspiration for my work. He addresses the assumption, held by many, that science will provide solutions to all the world's problems and mysteries. Realising the considerable value of the arts, he writes:

"To deal with the problems, which after all are inescapable, of living with limited intelligence in a limited world, I suggest that we may have to remove some of the emphasis we have lately placed on science and technology and have a new look at the arts; artists achieve elaborations of pattern, of sustaining relationships of parts with one another and with the whole, that may be astonishingly complex."
