Spine Chair - This was a chair designed as a reaction to the numerous ergonomic chairs that were in style at the time and the beautiful Harkonnen chair by H.R. Geiger. I wanted to implement a very interesting ergonomic system, that would let the user move freely, by implementing a spine structure.

Designboom: Inside the Bathroom Design Competition - A design project for a competition. I ended up not submitting it but it was a lot of fun to consider the use model of a modern bathroom and look at simplifying the human interaction.

Hanging Shelves - A methodology for shelving which I prototyped in my bedroom and family kitchen. The system used a small number of cheap components to hang from a celling. It was also quite easy to manufacture. In comparison to other home made shelves it is much cheaper and quicker to make as well as being more sturdy.

Automotive Projects - A few projects I did engaging various ideas in automotive design. One in particular involved the use of a air ram that would stop water from contacting the windscreen when driving above a certain minimum speed. This would remove the need for wind shield wipers.

System and interface design for a portable music device - A project delving into looking at music systems and how they are managed. This involved contemplating appropriate hepatic interfaces and also designing a system around the control and and data structure of the actual music storage. A big part of this design was to make music easy to find and work with, even when a user was in the middle of a different track. Something iPods still only do poorly.

Photography - This is some of my earliest photographic work and almost completely for documentation. I was on a trip to japan and I did not want to have to use words to explain everything I had seen, so I took a camera. In the end I took 15 rolls of film with very few similar shots on a trip that was less than 2 weeks. Since then I have taken a lot of photos, some can be seen online at picasaweb.google.com/mark.whiting
