The Next Nature Book
This book will radically shift your notion of nature. It shows how our image of nature as static, balanced and harmonic is naive and up for reconsideration. Where technology and nature are traditionally seen as opposed, they now appear to merge or even trade places.
We must no longer see ourselves as the anti-natural species that merely threatens and eliminates nature, but rather as catalysts of evolution. With our urge to design our environment, we cause the rising of a next nature that is unpredictable as ever: wild software, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us!
Edited and designed by Koert van Mensvoort and Hendrik-Jan Grievink. Contributions by (amongst others): Bruce Sterling, Kevin Kelly, Rachel Armstrong, Tracy Metz, Bas Haring, Allison Guy, Peter Lunenfeld, Berry Eggen and Jos De Mul.
About Next Nature Network
We are a network of makers and thinkers. We explore how technology becomes so omnipresent, complex, intimate and autonomous – a nature of its own. We stimulate discussion, initiate publications, events and traveling expositions on how to dream, build and live in the next nature. Our projects range from a fictional sneaker company that triggers the discussion about biotechnology, a smartphone app that allows you hear WiFi radiation, to a digital currency that expresses ecological value.
Why your support matters
In a landscape of conservative nature lovers, we are the progressive people that look at nature in a new way. How will we dream, build and live in the next nature? Your support gives us a voice, helps realize more projects and inspire more people.
