‘The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.’
Hunter S Thompson

Experimentation plays host to an unpredictable word of new possibilities, both material and conceptual. The further one goes, the greater the flirtation with things that work and things that don’t. Over time, all these things add up and accumulate understanding. The process of design often takes this experimental course, leading to an unpredictable result. As a designer, my time is mostly spent not with the result but with the journey itself. The result should share something of this journey with others; when this happens the result is good.
