A City Eating Itself



divers / divers


A City Eating Itself (in less than 10 minutes) is a design research & interactive storytelling project, made Affectlab, exploring the impact of on-demand delivery services on the social fabric of Amsterdam. With the rise of the platform economy, affect lab noticed a shift – from the city as a space for chance encounters and neighbourly interaction to a place of individualist consumption, catalysed by pandemic lock downs. A City Eating Itself focuses on one form of consumption: on-demand delivery services, known as flash delivery (flitsbezorging in Dutch).
