ENCOUNTER + EXPLORE + EXPERIENCE
Motion in the Shell

'The Motion in the Shell', which is the end result of integrating traditional construction traditions in nature with modern and digital fabrication technologies, is inspired by the unique Mediterranean geographical location. The two main shells produced are designed as tools that create different areas of experience within the nature, using different materials and different fabrication techniques.

While the 'shell' represents a static concept for its own existence, the thing that provides the 'Motion' which makes it persistent, namely 'continuity', begins with human. In this sense, the person encounters with the shell, explores the shell, and then begins to experience the shell. The person who is in the center of the ‘Motion in the Shell’ goes on his quest for 'continuity' through this individual experience.

Motion in the Shell is nourished by the search for continuity of the 'memories' moving into the future, while creating 'moments' that produce experience. Experience starts in the shell, motion makes it persistence.
