THE RISING INTERVIEW
Where are you right now?
London, at my studio
Where do you go when you need inspiration?
Never really considered needing to go anyway, but I guess going for a good bike ride or having a long shower will do the job! Anywhere I can relax really.
Idleness. A gift or curse?
Well that depends on the contex. Doing nothing on a weekend is a gift, repeating that notion on a job is a curse.
To Bitcoin, or not to Bitcoin?
Still not sure why we need to re-invent money.
Liberal Democracy or Democratic Liberalism?
Carpe Diem or nosce te ipsum (know thyself)?
Considering i just had to look both these up, not sure i have got an answer
Last app opened?
Does mail count?
Last book read?
i have proudly never read a book cover to cover.
Always changes, but MJ 'Off The Wall' was my first
