Iris de Vries


The potential of the human body is immense. But with an earth that is drastically changing, are we going to survive extreme conditions? Are we slowly waiting for evolution to save us? We’re running out of time, if we want to adapt to radical circumstances, we need to hurry! I think it’s time to take control.

I think we should push our human bodies to the ultimate, like athletes at the Olympics, but then a bit further. I want to propose an alternative sportstevent where the athletes strive to hyper-evolve. What will be the prize…eternal life?

Introduction Iris de Vries

As a designer, I want to talk about innovations in technology in a way that it is understandable for most people. I find that, in order to form an opinion about a topic, we all need to be critical. That means we need to be able to talk about it.

I want to approach a topic, such as eternal life, in a positive way because I believe that makes it easier to talk about. Participating in this design challenge gives me an opportunity to experiment, explore and find ways to communicate my vision with an audience. - Iris de Vries
