My First... interview

Here's a interview I did for a newspaper in Ireland a little while ago. The format is "My First..." where I was asked to tell about my first book, record etc. I never saw it, and I can't remember which paper it was for, but here it is anyway. Click to enlarge.

EXPO broom

While reminiscing the other night, we found this photo among those taken by Jo during the installation in Hanover. Finding ourselves without a broom, Miles improvised with a dustpan brush, a cable tie and a length of 2 x 1. Richard Wentworth – eat your heart out.

EXPO 2000 Ten Year Reunion

Last night was the 10 year reunion party for the team that worked together to produce the Hi-Life supermarket installation as part of EXPO 2000 in Hanover, Germany. Ten years ago. Ten years! A good time was had by all those present: Miles, Lucy, Pete, Chrissie, Andrew, Jo, Little Graham, Margaret and Big Graham. (Apologies from absentees Brendan and Jenny.) We were able to reminisce about the fun, the exhaustion and the giddy laughter brought on by lack of sleep.
