RON ARAD: I decided I don't want to do any more rocking chairs. I did too many rocking chairs. I promised myself never to do a rocking chair ever again and I started doodling and drawing. And, with the Southern Hemisphere whoops, not only I did a rocking chair that rocks back and forth, it also rocks sideways. But the beauty of it is that you design the landscape. The idea is to, do a sphere and to carve out of it a very comfortable landscape that's not too prescriptive, but amazingly comfortable. And, weight it, with lead at the tangent point. And, and let it, stand there and, and rock, and sway, and swing, and rotate, and turn.
