The Walking-Shelter is a human shelter stored within a pair of sneakers. Stored compactly in integrated net pockets within the shoe, the shelter expands out and around the body to form an enclosure that relies on the human frame as a supporting structure. The shelter accommodates for the body in a variety of ways and can be customised by the user to adapt to a variety of contexts and environments.

Through the magnetic, playful, and charismatic nature of the RedBall the work is able to access the imagination embedded in all of us. On the surface, the experience seems to be about the ball itself as an object, but the true power of the project is what it can create for those who experience it. It opens a doorway to imagine what if? As RedBall travels around the world people approach me on the street with excited suggestions about where to put it in their city. In that moment the person is not a spectator but a participant in the act of imagination. I have witnessed it across continents, diverse age spans, cultures, and languages, always issuing an invitation. That invitation to engage, to collectively imagine, is the true essence of the RedBall Project. The larger arc of the project is how each city responds to that invitation and, over time, what the developing story reveals about our individual and cultural imagination.
What the Driftwood Collective will grow to be is still a mystery to us. Perhaps the only thing worth mentioning at this moment is who, in fact, we are: a group of friends, craftsmen and artists that don´t take themselves too seriously and who, however lost in life they may be, are always easily found floating ashore. Surfers of dubious skill, who have decided to make something out of the idle hours languishing in between swells. Ultimately, the Driftwood Collective aims to contribute to the expression of an alternative surf culture still very incipient in Europe. A culture not necessarily set against the mainstream but definitely endeavored to the pursuit of beauty.
