Broadcast on Newsnight BBC in 1999, interviewed by Jeremy Paxman

On the effect the internet will have

‘’……the actual context and the state of content is going to be so different to anything we can really envisage at the moment’’

‘’Where the interplay between the user and the provider will be so in-simpatico it’s going to crash our ideas of what mediums are all about.’’

On art

‘’People like Duchamp were so prescient….the idea that the piece of work is not finished until the audience come to it and add their own interpretation….What the piece of art is about is the grey space in the middle’’

‘’The grey space in the middle is what the 21st Century’s going to be about’’ – Note; and so will our class.
