Readyquotes are slightly altered quotes by known thinkers and makers. The spirit of the original quote often is already a reflection of the interests expressed within the research of The Incredible Shrinking Man but may have one or two words changed to allow us to connect its essence to our vocabulary. We can therefor not really assign these quotes to the authors nor are we its authors. In the spirit of the artist Marcel Duchamp they are assisted readymades, or rather assisted readyquotes that by their re-contextualisation within the desire for a smaller human species may open up new thoughts and insights.

“An attitude to life which seeks fulfillment in the single-minded pursuit of height – in short, materialism – does not fit into this world, because it contains within itself no limiting principle, while the environment in which it is placed is strictly limited.” – Fritz Schumacher.
