On the Couch with Joshua Thomson

Joshua Thomson Arts Review On the CouchWho is Joshua Thomson?
I have been one of the key members of The Farm for over 10 years, and now, I am the co-artistic director of Legs On The Wall.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
I think I would live away from the city and be a cowboy.

Who inspires you and why?
Many people inspire me for many different reasons but most of all I find inspiration from my peers that continue to push the practice no matter what

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I think the key is not making a difference so I’m doing it but sometimes I think it would be good to get rid of a few people from this overcrowded planet and give it back to nature

Favourite holiday destination and why?
When you say holiday do you mean paid for holiday, I haven’t had to pay for a whole life for a long time.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
To the beach or to the property I own which has a lovely river running through it.

What are you currently reading?
I don’t read!

What are you currently listening to?
As I am driving to work as we speak I am listening to Triple J on the radio.

Happiness is?
Being happy.

What does the future hold for you?
The future always had to come in on because I don’t know exactly what that is and things change and shift in life goes on so I think what it holds for me is the continuation of the present.
