a new Flatland

Two feet wide , twenty eight feet long, forty feet high. The six people that lived there called it flatland. They lived in this clear vinyl space for 15 days. Says the designer: "I see (smell and hear) way more than I want about the habits of the others I am flat [sic] with. The design of the space constructs us in a way that departs from how we culturally understand ourselves (autonomous, private, and with options for movement). After six days in Flatland I feel more like a pet than a person."
