David weaves storytelling performance, music and discussion around the importance of beauty - even his globally famous lights shine in their own role.
Drawing from his own wilderness experiences, he examines how our idea of beauty grew out of our relationship with the natural world, and tracks our need to engage with it through art, from when we first made marks on cave walls.
He discusses the importance of Polynesian and Australian Aboriginal culture and gives his unique perspective on the creative process.
How has our changing attitude to nature - due to our destructive effect, the irrelevance of religion and science’s revelations - affected the contemporary notion of beauty?
