With four types of different building blocks – soft and hard tissues and two types of muscles – scientistic simulated evolution, with the one rule for success that the fastest robots create more offspring. Do you remember when you first got out of the ocean, brushed the water off your fins and tried your first steps? Aww. It's a parade of puffing creatures you can not miss.

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.
