Design Indaba Interview

June 30th 2013

Our South African friends of Design Indaba made a nifty little video of the Next Nature presentation we did at the What Design Can Do conference this spring.

Next Nature researchers Van Mensvoort & Grievink explain how speculative design can make abstract new technologies tangible and emphasize the urgency to get a grip on the technologies that will constitute our next nature. If we don't domesticate our technologies, they will domesticate us.

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.
