More About the Author

Dr. Koert van Mensvoort is an artist, technologist and philosopher best known for his work on the philosophical concept of Next Nature, which revolves around the idea that our technological environment has become so complex, omnipresent and autonomous that it is best perceived as a nature of its own. It is his aim to better understand our co-evolutionary relationship with technology and help set out a track towards a future that is rewarding for both humankind and the planet at large.

How are there no reviews for this? This is a pretty cool book. We were reading it for class, but they were (licensed) black and white copies. The full color book looks pretty cool, and it was only $30, so I figured I'd pick it up.

The book is basically about how our view of what's nature has been changing, and what effects we've had on nature. So for example we have genetically modified food, so that isn't quite so natural, but economic crisises are sometimes considered nature. The book uses visual imagery a lot, like it's mostly pictures, to show how we already have changed nature, or ways that scientists and designers envision we might soon be able to change nature.

If you're debating, check out their web site, it has a lot of the stories used in the book on there, so you can get a good idea of what it's all about.

This is an exploration that is hard to follow and seems more like an inside conversation. It has been hard to stick with long enough to really 'get' what they are trying to say. Interesting book product - very heavy and luschly printed.
