Antenna Tree Mast Safari

Arnoud van den Heuvel
August 30th 2009

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.

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.
