Designers exist solely via the simple structure of crisis in which solutions, manipulations and incarnations counterbalance perpetual problems, challenges and obstacles.

We are the mediators of fact that regurgitate inarticulate laboratory knowledge into legible three-dimensional translations.

The majority of ‘designers’ are not inventors or innovators, they are alchemists, perpetually searching for a means to create gold from the bare bones of science. Designers appropriate scientific fact and mediate this immaterial knowledge in such a way as it can perform a practical function to both the ‘user’ and big business.

We represent the lens of elucidation through which science and technology are simultaneously projected back onto the human body.

How Can we turn a crisis into a positive opportunity?
The best way is to create a 'domino effect' or perpetual state of crisis.
By instinctively solving one crisis, your resolution could, in turn create the next emergency situation that needs to be rectified.
This takes the refined decision making process of "what to design next?" out of your hands, leaving you unprejudiced and more perceptually aware.

Rather than manufacturing in crisis with "Planned Obsolescence," I want to design for manufacture that is considered obsolete.

Having looked at the torus or space surrounding an inflatable sphere (tennis ball), I'm now also interested in exploring the geometric space surrounding three interconnected spheres. 
This configuration proves highly stable (in a crisis of gravity) and self righting from almost any angle. 
This configuration speaks of the same interlocking language as that of the two equal halves of a tennis ball.
