Wilderness Survival

Onomatopee 113

Anna Bak’s Wilderness Survival is a project about the survival of real or speculative dangers, which considers practical and philosophical understandings of the ‘survivalist’ lifestyle.

Wilderness: a physical space and a mental state.
Survival: a word evoking a disaster or a post-disaster scenario, caused by natural catastrophe, terrorist attack or sudden economic downturn, became unwillingly the philosophy of life and practice of many in the uncertainties of the 21st century.

During Dutch Design Week Anna Bak will show devices which activate our physical and intuitive skills to deal with anxiety, stress, boredom and the danger of going bush-wacky in the wilderness of our lives.

This book gives you an insight to some of the main problems and challenges you may face in the wilderness, and provides basic tools to handle these situations.
