When fake nature interacts with the natural environment. Phone antenna trees grow alongside real pines, mountains are supported by steel, robot fishes swim with marine creatures and pigeons land on the branches of a fake tree. Peculiar image of the week. Via John Fleck

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.Comment
