Image Statement: The title refers to that funny British comedy show from years ago, and the inspiration was the Millennium Tower in San Francisco which has sunk, some 16 inches on its foundation. The plaited twisted cubes seemed the perfect building blocks for a structurally unsound building or world. There is so much that is faulty these days, there could be many ways to interpret this title.
