‘We have to understand what it means to be human in a world that is increasingly standardized’

Hendrik-Jan Grievink


Hendrik-Jan Grievink is designer at Next Nature Network since 2007. In that position, he has been responsible for much of the visual output of Next Nature Network. His work includes the Fake for Real Memory Game, about the tense relation between reality and simulation (BIS publishers 2007); the book Next Nature: Nature Changes Along With Us (2011); art direction and design of the NANO Supermarket, our mobile expo disguised as a supermarket about the impact of nanotechnology on our daily lives (2010 – present) and the In Vitro Meat Cookbook, which explores the possible futures of lab grown meat through design fiction (BIS publishers, 2014).

Hendrik-Jan organizes interactive workshops and currently leads the project Reprodutopia, a research into how Artificial Reproductive Technologies such as the artificial womb will impact love, sexuality and relationships in the future.
