Who Watches the Watchers?

Allison Guy
November 3rd 2011

In The Watchers, the creative geniuses at Studio Smack picture a world where surveillance systems don't just watch us - they actively judge.  Are you a green-coded Conformist or a red-alert Intellectual? The tone is paranoid, but it's a vivid reminder that our technological systems make us as much as we make them. Autonomous algorithms already control our economy, our internet, and our vacuum cleaners. It's not a stretch to imagine that autonomous cameras will control our security and social spaces. …

Next Nature Hands Out Performance-Enhancing Pills

November 2nd 2011

Recently Google slapped our site with a warning that "something's not right here!" It seems that the Drug Enforcement Agency has caught the Next Nature staff handing out baggies of performance-enhancing pills in Amsterdam. How else will our audience be able to handle the Power Show without an artificial boost?

Okay, so we've been joking: Google found a potential security leak in our website last week. We fixed it quickly, and a few more days elapsed before the Internet noticed. But we have …

The Pigeon that Shat the Golden Soap

Allison Guy
October 24th 2011

Ever wished you could take a shower with pigeon poop? Artist Tuur van Balen proposes changing pigeons from flying rats to cleaning agents. A speculative, specially engineered bacteria, as harmless to pigeons as Lactobacillus is to humans, could potentially change pigeon excrement into biological soap.

For Pigeon D'Or, van Balen built a coop that clips to a window, which would allow future apartment dwellers to harvest their very own fresh, pigeon-made soap. Another version of the perch extends over a car's windshield, …

Using specially developed image recognition software, Mul creates the illusion of motion between unrelated images. The same software also generates musical notes that vary with the speed and type of the image being displayed.The result is a hypnotic experience that blends pictures of nature, culture, sunsets, skeletons and supermodels into a portrait of humanity's collective visual consciousness. The visual power of God's Browser emphasizes that, in an image-saturated society, the simulation can become just as valuable and meaningful as the "authentic" object. Mul's work looks, and sounds, like the creation of a virtual world, where God could only connect to the universe from the internet.Geert Mul will be presenting God's Brower at the Next Nature Power Show in collaboration with philosopher Jos de Mul.

According to United Nations demographers, the seven billionth person on Earth arrived today, just in time to put on a tiny halloween costume (might we suggest an adorably endangered tuna?). It's taken just 12 years to add the last billion people, and even with slowing birth rates, it will still take us only 14 years to add another billion more.What does the burgeoning population of Homo sapiens mean for our overloaded planet?

Except for the lucky few, food, shelter, and even water can be expensive and in short supply. We have tried to address global problems with bigger technologies and bigger laws, but what if we decided to go small? Really small. How would the world change if every human was only 50 centimeters tall?Since first being featured on Next Nature, Arne Hendricks' project The Incredible Shrinking Man has gained a half dozen collaborators and an encyclopedic amount of reporting and speculation. The benefits of downsizing the human species are practical and wonderful: We could fit dozens of people in the average bedroom, use sunflowers as edible tables, and wander through a permanent amusement park of giant objects left over from our time as giants. One chicken could provide meals for 100 people.  A single apple could power you for an entire day. The world's current existing renewable energy facilities would be more than adequate to run our tiny brave new world. Not to mention the health benefits.  Short people tend to live longer and have a lower risk of cancer than their lanky friends.Hendricks recognizes the downsides to shrinking the human race. Chief among these concerns are what might happen to our lavish, oversize brains. Homo florensis appears to have had a relatively complex hunter-gather society, despite their hobbit-like proportions, though there's no guarantee that a significantly smaller brain would function just as well as our existing ones. Scientists would have to figure out a way to decrease the size, but not number, of our neurons.Our new Lilliputian bodies also lead to more everyday issues. As the pitches of our voices changed, old music and media would sound strangely loud and deep. Hail would be fatal, heavy rain would give us bruises, and house cats would be as threatening as African lions. Of course, given our ingenuity at utilizing resources, it may be that 7 billion tiny humans quickly multiply to 30 billion, and outstrip whatever ecological deliverance Hendricks is hoping for.Images via k-stalker and seul-le-cinema.
