What are you reading?
[Charles] Bukowski, Pulp ( in Italian – best way to keep up a language!)

Last film you saw and your verdict?
La Grande Bellezza - vibrant, loved it

Last gig/concert you went to and your verdict?
The xx in the O2. Lighting was amazing but their music is a bit boring.

Last stage production you saw and your verdict?
Think it was Misterman! Was such a powerful production I can almost replay it in my head.

Last gallery / museum / exhibition you visited and your verdict?
MADRE in Naples. Some really interesting local and international work.

You have a golden ticket to Easons, what magazine is first on your list?
I’d judge by the cover – but it would be fashion!

Ha ha I’m not that technically inclined!

Do you have a favourite podcast or radio programme aside from your own?
I like listening to John Creedon on RTE radio 1.

When you fall into a YouTube hole what’s the general subject matter of the videos you’re watching?
Music videos. Cheese and amazingly over produced stuff.

Lasertom, ‘Innerspaceman’ – the soundtrack for our Absolut Originality projection mapping piece.

Which boxset/TV series do you have on the go at the moment?
Just finished watching Orange Is The New Black.

Hate mobile phone games/ video games

What is your favourite club night of all time?
Assquake or Wax.

If you could transport one international cultural outlet to your home town, what would it be and why?
Whitechapel Gallery in london. I’ve seen some of my favourite shows there and they are always a surprise.
