These SMS-style messages scribbled into the mountains by Belgian artist Wim Delvoye, make us so humbly aware of the discrepancy between our everyday human experience and some of the larger forces of nature.

and the fact that those two peaks look like giant breasts isn't next nature stuff in their own right?

Are these messages really carved into the rock or are they digitalized onto the photos? Personally, I like them, but I can't see the New Zealand conservation department (which owns the mountains) allowing someone to do that to "nature" here.

I would like to see this comment carved into the K2

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.
