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

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.
