In 2000, ahead of the launch of their 'Angel' installation, featuring 80 gallons of live dyed maggots arranged in the shape of an angelic face, at La Beauté en Avignon, Nick Knight and Lee McQueen were commissioned by i-D to interview each other. The discussion was filmed at London's Hempel Hotel by Knight's assistants. Only part of the footage survives, although all of the audio from the conversation remains intact.
