K B: The Square – nobody told me why.

Miloco: Please describe The Square in one line:
K B: Poorly named – it’s more oblong thn square

(we can explain that it is in fact named as a reference to its location on Hoxton Square. The actual shape of the room was not considered)

Miloco: Who was your studio assistant, and how was your studio assistant?
K B: Mark (Allaway), and he seemed to be in good health.

Miloco: How would you describe the material you’re working on?

Miloco: What’s the strangest rumour you ever heard about yourself?

Miloco: You are placed infront of a time machine. Which year in history would you go to and why?
K B: Have you ever seen Back to the Future 2? That’s what I would do.
