I like boats. Some of the old ones are pretty enough that it seems like their designs must have come as much from looking at the water as anything else. I think that that is what interests me- the precise mechanical construction of a form that reflects the natural dynamic system it is built to function in. I'm not necessarily interested in analyzing ocean waves or anything, I just like that process. I'll make some guesses about how I think nature ought to work, and then construct a sort of experiment to see what kind of world is implied in the result.
