Next Nature

Nature changes along with us

We debate saving nature, we dream about escaping to nature, but rarely do we ask “What is nature?”. In an era when the influence of humanity is impossible to escape, our established notion of nature must be reconsidered. 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 wild and unpredictable as ever.
