HS: How do you choose the objects you own?
MM: I think it feels more like they choose me! But also I guess it’s just instinctive; you end up surrounding yourself with things you like or love.
HS: Do your belongings ever take new forms or purposes?
MM: Yes, I’ve often re-purposed things, or adapted or customised things.
HS: Does your home reflect your practice? If so how?
MM: Yes, I guess quite a lot. Most of the furniture is prototypes, or things left over from projects, or things I have found & repaired or adapted.
HS: If you could be an object what would you be?
MM: A bicycle.
