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.

Modern Flint Tools

Stone tools are the most ancient evidence of our ancestor’s ingenuity, proof that we’ve been augmenting our bodies for millions of years. These flint tools by Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow update our prehistory with modern materials and techniques. Each knapped tool is scanned and then outfitted with a form-fitting 3D-printed handle. In marrying the most basic fabrication technique with one of the most advanced,┬áDrach and Ganchrow’s project demonstrates how modern technologies return us to the tribe.

  1. Is this for real?! :) This looks nice. Combining ancient and modern technologies.

    I’d like this idea! I love that it has a touch of ancient tools and with a modernize handle. It looks so wonderful.
