    Thomas Thwaites is a British designer who, through the creation of his objects, explores the psychological and social impact of technologies. For over a year, he conducted research to prepare himself to spend three days living like a goat in the Swiss Alps. He built an exoskeleton to adapt his bipedal body to that of a quadruped, and created a prosthetic artificial stomach to allow him to feed on grass, just like a goat. For several days he lived among the herd, observing distinctions in the natural world that he had not previously perceived, and observing the world from new perspectives, in a desire to step out of himself and distance himself from an anthropocentric vision.
