The Incredible Shrinking Man

Inspiration day

1 Mar 2012
1 Mar 2013

During this inspiration day we’ll work on the speculative design project of artist and researcher Arne Hendriks. The Incredible Shrinking Man is an on-going research about the consequences of downsizing the human species to 50 centimetres.


The Incredible Shrinking Man -

It has been a long established trend for people to grow taller. As a direct result we need more energy, more food and more space. But what if we decided to turn this trend around?

Goal of the day is to research the challenges, opportunities and consequences for the way we’ll live, work and play. We investigate consequences for your life, food and surroundings. We can make shrinky cocktails and dinner, and create a shrinky fish farm. Maybe the most beautiful element of this day is the fact that everybody can contribute to this project!
