Cellphone Treemasts

Van Mensvoort
June 10th 2006

Mobile phone operators go to extraordinary lengths to conceal the masts that form their networks. They are being disguised as chimneys, clocks, drainpipes, telegraph poles, and even trees. The UK has already deployed many of these trees in national parks, and the first Dutch tree mast is placed in Bloemendaal. The trees are twice as expensive as traditional phone pylons.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
