The building blocks of life turn out to be 30x30cm.

I found out 30x30cm is the most common standard size in the (metric system-using) world. Everything appears to fit together and the world seams to be build up out of practical building blocks. De neurotic need to organise everything seams satisfiable.

‘After some online research, I discovered it is actually possible to live a life using only products of 30x30cm. For example, you can prepare, eat and clean up a whole dinner using only products of 30x30cm.’

30x30cm is a project in which I try to re-categorise the physical world.
