is a future reminder, reflecting on what’s essential to us in the present time. Since we can’t carry on making studio visits we ask participant artists pick one word that they’ve treasure the most lately or essential to them which they haven't paid enough attention to before.It can be a metaphor, an object, a notion, an indoor/outdoor place or a value.
