sixties last

The flower depicted in the image is a good example of Hypernature. While fake nature is always a flatter surrogate of old nature, hypernature is a simulation of an old nature that never really existed. Better than the real thing. Hypernature = authentic fake nature.

To bad it is just a science fiction video about the happy marriage between nature and culture by 1st Ave Machines, 3D studio.

Sure it is a fantasy film about the merging of the 'born' and the 'made'. Nature becomes culture AND culture becomes nature. It is not often that you see those two events visualised in one piece. That is what I like very much about this video.
Of course I don't expect that something like this will litteraly evolve in Next Nature, but I like the fantasy of it. The flower depicted in the image is a good example of Hypernature. While fake nature is always a flatter surrogate of old nature, hypernature is a simulation of an old nature that never really existed. Better than the real thing. Hypernature = authentic fake nature.
(I've added this text tot the original post to make the point clearer)

This is (old) nature looking stuff done with computer graphics, but what makes it next nature?

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
