That image looks quite impressive. Very nice as a piece of art but I can't see how navigation would fit into it? I suppose it's early yet but from experience I know it's better to make a design which fits your information/navigation structure rather than trying to make a statement with the layout and making the content fit around it.

Only comment I would really make about the construction is watch how you label each page - give everything descriptive names. I got really confused with which page was which when I made my first site (using frames) though that was a few years ago now. I imagine you can export from Flash into Fireworks quite easily (you can definitely export a frame of the Flash movie as a gif as long as you've got Flash 5.0a, 'a' is the update, or above). Dunno if that helps but thought I'd let you know.

i also am wondering where the navigation will be...

and dont use frames. they suck, and there's no reason to use them. plus they do weird things, like if you look at 883's site, you can move the header around by clicking and dragging (no offence 883 )

Frames can be useful, but usually more so for web applications like phpmyadmin. For websites, they are rarely necessary, especially with the possibilities for PHP includes, etc.

Looks nice, but I don't know if it will suit a web site layout.

Frames have there uses. Most free servers don't support php, ssi, cgi, e.t.c, e.t.c.

There nothing wrong with frames, it's the problem lies with webmasters who cannot implement them properly, and users who move them for no good reason.

i think u should put a "bowl" or something like on the spikes where they attach to the spheres.
also id use some textures on the metal instead of noise, dont really like that part of it

just some constructive criticism, this still looks very nice. nice job
