"This studio, a belated exercise in Fleshology- 'becoming animal', is not about the mimetic career of biology into and onto architecture, but of the transference of multiple physiologic scales into a systematic intelligence of the involute surface dwelling, and back again. The ocular nerve of the owl, the locomotion of the giant jellyfish, the pack logistics of the rat(s), the program of the frog, are not just forms, organic symmetries and baroque geomtries. They are machines, they are solutions, partila grammars to take shape for us, and we for them."
