This article describes Janet Cardiff's artistic process and her need for space. Since moving to Berlin in the early 2000's, her work has augmented in quality as well as been acclaimed internationally. The Paradise Institute garnered Cardiff and her husband George Bures Miller the jury prize at the Venice Biennale. Cardiff's journey from print to sound artist introduces the notion that Berlin may be for Cardiff a great source of creativity in the continuation of her artistic endeavours.
