Arne Hendriks is an artist and exhibition maker based in Amsterdam. He’s almost 2 meters tall but not too happy about it. Especially when he found out that every centimeter above 152 cm takes about 6 months of your life expectation. Arne Hendriks is a Master of Art (University of Amsterdam, 2001) and works passionately in the field of open-design, hacking, speculative research, education and the fine culture of repair. He’s married and has identical twin sons. When they turned 7 years old hendriks realised they had reached the average height of an adult Mbuti pygmy, being 136cm each. If you put them on top of each other they were the same height as Robert Wadlow, the tallest person that ever lived (272cm).
