Tips for How To Hide in a Closet from Adam Norton

We do love demonstrations of adapting and living in small spaces; it is interesting how many of them come from artists, such as Andrea Zittel or James Westwater. Now Australian artist Adam Norton presents the Generic Escape Capsule, a complete machine for living hidden in an old wardrobe.

While I am not particularly enthusiastic about the toilet facilities, the rest of the unit is a clever accommodation of everything one needs, and the periscope is a lovely touch.

Closup of cooking, washing and dining facilities. Anyone who has read the Chronicles of Narnia or watched Time Bandits knows where wardrobes can take you. At least with this one, you are well prepared.
