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.

Animatus

A new series of works by artist Hyungkoo Lee called “Animatus” features hand-fabricated skeletons of cartoon characters along with detailed anatomical drawings. According to the artist, the Animatus series started with the “intention to analyze anatomical structures and physical forms of animation characters, within the hypothesis to visualize their possible anatomical foundation.” Lee constructs the skeletons using a hybrid mix of real animal bones and synthetic materials.

    Nice!

    “It’s alive, it’s ALIVE!!!”

    One day they will walk around in our world.

    However, the day that happens, they’d probably exhaust us.

  2. So this is what they do with dinosaurs? ;-)

  3. I love this whole series of posts on hypernature comic figures. Never thought about it, but it is sooo nextnature!

  4. Yes, I agree. And Lee’s skeletons are so amazing because they make it really clear, by basing ‘reality’ on fiction instead of the other way around.
