Visit the Modernist Dream

February 16th 2017

Imagine living in a completely simulated virtual reality. The Modernist Dream is an environment made of screens and interfaces, with responsive walls, windows and ceilings. By having absolute control over what our surroundings should hold, we have the world at our fingertips. However, simulations will become so hyperreal, we no longer find ourselves able to distinguish between the real and the virtual. Step inside the Next Nature Habitat VR and discover the future environments we might live in someday.

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.
