What if you suddenly shrunk and became only 50 centimeters tall? What would you encounter?
For me the first question that came up was ‘would we be more social and helpful to each other then we are right know?’. During a project week titled, “The Incredible Shrinking Man”, within a group of
5, we created a movie in 3 days where we folded a 4m x 4m piece of paper to investigate whether this changed communication and collaboration in a new and challenging situation.
We were looking for a balance between a poetic work and prove that at the time you’re smaller or weaker, you will become more obliged to cooperate and that communication thereby becomes more important than in our world right now.
So no more individualism where we try to do everything alone, but a world where we work together and help each other.
