Go Slow: Droog with Marije Vogelzang, sloom.org (Rianne Makkink and Herman Verkerk) and Hansje van Halem
The project reacts to an accelerated society, where people consume at a pace that doesn’t allow for the appreciation of details and processes. In Go Slow café, the menus are embroidered. Seniors prepare food with attention and serve it slowly. Tea bags are sewn on the spot.
The menu visualizes the transport of food. Food with ingredients from distant places are served in tiny portions, food from the local garden is served in generous portions.
