David Booth aka Ghostpatrol 10 Questions

What's in your pockets?
Nothing sorry, I’ve been waring shorts without pockets for months, it’s almost 40 degrees here today. And I’ve been trying not to even carry a phone when I leave the house.

Sunset or Sunrise?
I’d love to say sunrise. But I definitely see a lot more sunsets than sunrises. I’m genuinely happy to be seeing any glimpse of the sun at it’s best.

Beatles or Rolling Stones?
There was time when that answer would have easily been The Beatles. But now I don’t really care for either. They get enough airtime and I’d rather listen to almost anything else.

How long can you hold your breath?
Ummmm, I’m not sure. I guess I don’t test myself enough

Would you rather travel back in time 100 years or forward 100 years?
Eek, I don’t really want to be in 1919, but as much as I’d like to be optimistic about the future, I don’t know if 2119 is gonna be that great either.

If you could paint the outside of any building in Australia which one?
Ummmmm, That’s tricky.

When was the last time you stayed up all night?
No comment.

If you could change one thing about Parliament House in Canberra what would it be?
I’d love for the Indigenous Uluru Statement From The Heart to be listened to and actioned. For a truth telling commission to be enacted. I would love to see a new flag, a new beginning from Australia to bust out the top of the building like a giant rainbow serpent erupting like a volcano.

Would you like to see Attunga Point on the shoreline of Lake Burley Griffin used as a site for a new prime minister's residence? 
I try to spend as little time as possible thinking about the prime minster and their residence. I guess the only people that are really qualified to make that call are the traditional owners of the land.

M&Ms or Smarties? 
Easily M&Ms, I like the peanut ones.

Ghostpatrol has a new drawing being projected on Parliament House from March 1st - 17th for Enlighten. And a new exhibition opening in Hobart on March 22nd at the new Long House building. It’s called Tasmanian Time Traveler, his first exhibition in the state.
