This loading truck belongs to Utopia [community] – brings mail, food, from Alice Springs. Sometimes I pay little bit for ride to Alice Springs – bit like bush bus – sit on bench seat in the back – bumpy ride – stop along way for break – driver, he’s family. Get off at shops or Tangentyere. Sometimes that truck is school bus – gives lifts around community. Sometimes dogs get picked up. No cattle. No horses. I’ve been catching that one for long time now. I go home every time I can.’ 2010 TOGART Finalist
