The Heavy Wait on Small Things is about learning to stretch out and savour carrying the weight of wants.

Josie says: “In creating this quiet portrait of the things that I want for myself, I have sought to disrupt my frustration and impatience at waiting for things; for the right job, for a sunny day, for a place to have chooks! This is my attempt to view the waiting through a different lens, to shift my perspective and appreciate this time to imagine, create and indulge.”

“A few weeks ago, I read an essay that likened carrying around disappointments and frustrations to carrying around a backpack full of rocks. It suggested that one should try to take off the backpack, put down all those rocks and instead, carry around just one. On that rock is written ‘I am allowed to want things’. This symbolism and sentiment inspired me.”
