After going through the experimental type reading I was fairly confused. After going through it again there was a little light at the end of the tunnel. Out of the handful of definitions of experiment and experimental type, I think that I understand one at least a little bit. Experiment in type or design of any kind is simply the act of creating something. At its infancy a project is still an experiment so long as there is openness to whatever turns the project takes. The inspiration from the form and natural progression of the project carries the experiment up to the refining stages. This is where the experimental nature ceases and the focus turns towards whatever needs the project's results suit best. Therefor, experimenting is the means of unfocused and natural process to inform later experiments and commercial projects.
