My work originates from a curiosity with geometry and fundamental physics and how humans use science to shape the world. We constantly feel the need to change, manipulate and transform the environment to meet our needs. The concept of Stealth came from an article in The New Scientist magazine (March 2006) in which Pentagon scientists plan to implant electrodes into the brain of sharks to exploit their natural ability to glide through the water with little disturbance. The hope is to use the animals as stealth spies and to follow vessels undetected.
