The Fence

This illustration by Daniel Quinn gives us a satirical yet bona fide view on our changing relation with nature. Oddly enough the illustrator presents all human activity as blank space. As if we are merely reducing complexity and slowly but steadily turning the planet into Mars. Obviously, the blank planet does adds to the comical effect, yet one might just as well argue complexity on the planet increases as a result of our human presence. No?

Thanks for the heads up Geoff Hamilton.

Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
