There’s an interview conducted via e.mail in April 2021 with Italian publication Art and Investments, mostly about Cultivate, a little bit about my background as well (and I might have lost an L again and I don’t know where they found some of those videos from? who on earth is Sean Warnell?). A big thanks to Alessio Musella for taking the time to do it.
