In her AiRx application Lawrence says,

“ The notion of linking two people, two countries and two sites is something I would wish for the work to make apparent. My interest in this programme is largely based upon the site of the Botanic Garden and the opportunity to collaborate and work within another culture and country, and the challenge in working outside of my comfort zone”
