The Aware is designed by Matthieu "GRAOU" MARECHAL
The Aware was born for the first time just after Stampede. I had sharp forms in minds, contrary to my first design. Points, angles… When I showed this design to Xela, least that I can say is that he was not enthusiast. I have to say that I understood him, being myself not completely satisfied; but I knew that I was chasing something good.
A few months later, I took back the plans. I decided to run only a single idea, rather than having several irons in the fire! An empty hub, blank, a yoyo where the distribution of the masses would be made outside and not inside.
What here is thus what has succeeds in the Aware. An inverted work, in a way, because I have for habit to define at first the general shape, and then to place the masses according to the wished play. There, I drew at first this empty hub, and placed my masses all around, obtaining something unconventional, but interesting. Xela agreed. The Aware was born.
As for the name, it is about a private joke which a few Inhabitants of Nantes will understand...
