What is Next Nature?

With our attempts to cultivate nature, humankind causes the rising of a next nature, which is wild and unpredictable as ever. Wild systems, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us.

    hmm… I’m not sure about this one.. When it looks like a flower, it’s nature? If it was just a light would it be next nature?

  2. Indeed, the ‘flower’ is totally fake nature. It is annecdotical; not the best part of the design. The fact that people function as displays is the most interesting part for me.
