Next for the Off the Grid Artist Series is Sui Zhen. I had already been listening to her ornamental, escapist songs following the weekend, so prior to even meeting her she had me in a good place. We met in the city. Becky, aka Sui Zhen, had just come from shooting a short film, she introduced herself and let us know of the pink satin outfit in her bag, also pointing out the false freckles painted upon her cheek.

In the lead-up to Off the Grid, Finding Infinity will be introducing you to the artists from the festival each week. Telling you the stories of our conversations. Our question, that will string these stories together is: can a party transform a city?

Ross Harding, the founder of Finding Infinity, earned a trip to talk with Julian after raising the top question on the social democracy organisation

 “We want to power the world using only renewable energy! We believe the barriers are not technical or financial, but they are political and social. What are the barriers on this transition from your point of view, and how would you suggest is the best way to speed up the transition?”
