Art without engineering is dreaming;
Engineering without art is calculating.

Microship Project on Cyberlife – Discovery Channel, 1996

This piece was filmed about halfway through my first year in the Silicon Valley Microship lab sponsored by Apple, and I was working with my partner of the epoch, Faun Skyles. The project substrate was a 30-foot folding trimaran that we picked up in Southern California after fiddling for a couple of years with kayak-based approaches. Ironically, a year later, I went full circle and started anew with a pair of canoes as center hulls. This video gives a snapshot of the project in mid-1996, with a look at the BEHEMOTH bicycle for context.
