There may even come a moment that our connection with an industrially manufactured coke bottle may be richer and more mythical that our relation with a genetically analysed and manipulated white rabbit in the woods. - Exploring Next Nature, May 2004

Guess what, the coke bottle looks like a rabbit. It connects to a local wi-fi network to provide services to any users nearby. It can sing, talk, flash colored lights within its translucent body, and move its ears to let you know whether you have new email, or what the weather's like outside, or how the stock market is doing, etc.

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.
