So what's the story behind...

…those cool abstract header images above (CREATE / SOLVE / LEAD)?

They all elements of complex and innovative projects. Starting with CREATE.

A fine art developmental piece titled: “Cellular bowl”. Remarkable for contrasting and highlighting certain  incredible aspects of 3DPrinting /Additive manufacturing.

How is this achieved? On the face of it this small sculpture is a combination of organic profiling based on cell wall patterns and a simple extruded form factor. 

However the removal of the bowl shaped scoop turns it on its head.

Pretty much impossible to make through traditional means, yet simple and visually engaging, it very simply exemplifies both the simplicity and complexity enabled by this new technology.

This simple sculpture both delights and surprises everyone that sees it, regardless of its final 3DPrinted dimensions.

A project successful on a number of levels, and a beautiful sculpture.

The second element SOLVE is a longer story and equally unusual. Developing a screenplay narrative foretelling the now widely understood problem of low Earth orbit debris causing huge problems.  Extensive communications with a NASA department head allowed this ongoing idea to be developed. An image that spoke of the destruction, desolation and human loss caused by projectiles  travelling at 12 miles/second…

The visual power of a glass chip star was selected, made from human shaped elements to contain visceral, tech and horror narratives within one image.

The final element in this triptych journey is mold breaking and unexpected; LEAD.

A strong passion for music, audio and acoustics with deep invention within those fields both technically and in application goes without saying.

Son.im founder, Richard Grant was asked to be one of the mentor team at the first ever Abbey road Hackathon held over a 48 hour period in Studio 1 and hosted by their innovation department, RED.

A hugely significant event and the repercussions from it continue to reverberate.
