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.

Antenna Tree Mast Safari

Antenna Tree Mast Safari

This picture was taken in Zambia by Sarah Los (NL) while on wildlife safari. Every fairly trained “NextNature spotter” should be able to distinguish the cellphone-tree masts from old-nature trees. But that’s odd; there are three of them in a row and all different species!? Does every cellular network provider plant its own tree family? It surely looks like a competition. Future designs are expected to look better, taller and greener.

Let us do a quick jungle safari ourselves.

  1. Question that pops into mind: Would ‘technodiversity’ be the term to adress this subject?

  2. I find the term ‘Technodiversity’ certainly thought provoking. I would treat it as a subset of biodiversity (but thats my nextnature mind). One might argue that a high amount of technodiversity is in general a good thing as it offers lots of possibilities for evolution.

    Here’s another one, in Bloemendaal near the beach:

  4. @Namdnal: I know that one, we recorded this video in Bloemendaal: http://www.nextnature.net/?p=3620

    @Arnoud, how could you have missed that one? ;)

  5. Whoops, added! ;) It was in the ‘related’ section though. If you happen to discover new species, please leave a comment!

    ;-) Good to see the trees brothers and sisters!

  7. this kinda reminds of the big tree in myst

  8. Now this is vary inovative and cool I can’t believe this true until I really see one up close and in real live but ya that makes sense lol oh man who ever came up with the consecpt is thinking on the right path I mean trees now will actually try and live up to these Fakes live size and span maybe a win win for both us and nature really. :) I am happy about this.
