"It is through interplay that we transcend a static, mechanical existence, but we can only operate within the constraints provided by our environment. The multivalent environment invites interplay and takes one of two forms: either that of kinetic transformability, or of pluralized indeterminacy. This multivalence empowers us through choice and interpretation, and in a sense we are validated as conscious, creative beings. By creating ambiguous spaces that exclude functional indicators and creating transformable architectural elements, this condition will be realized."
