The United Nations has estimated that by 2050 two-thirds of the global population will live in urban areas. Living at high density can aggravate a number of stress factors, placing a renewed importance on fostering positive connections between both individuals and communities. Apparatus for social density is a collaborative design project that invites strangers to come together and share in the production and consumption of food in an improvised urban setting. By creating a sense of conviviality, conversations can emerge and connections be made – helping participants to learn to live together more agreeably.
Lukas Kopf’s practice focuses on connecting people with each other. In unconventional ways he creates situations that call for participation, using the production of food as an initiator His site-specific set ups relay on the necessity to connect with context and people in order to create a social density. He graduated in 2018 as Master of Arts in the department of space&designSTRATEGIES of the University of Art and Design Linz, Austria.morePortfolio Instagram
