next nature

15/07/2009

The notions of nature and culture
seem to be trading places. Nature, in the sense of trees,
plants, animals, atoms, or climate, is getting increasingly
controlled and governed by man. It has turned into a cultural
category. At the same time, products of culture, which we
used to be in control of man, tend to outgrow us and become
autonomous. The ‘natural powers’ seem to shift to another
field. Nature changes along with us. We propose the term
‘next nature’ for this culturally emerged nature. Next nature
is real nature, no representation, or a simulation of some
long-lost phenomenon.
