If you happen to be in the neighborhood, you may want to attend that inspirational Next Nature lecture I will be throwing this Sunday 15-11-2009 at the Microwave International New Media Arts Festival in Hong Kong.

The festival is highly resonating on the nature caused by people and will also screen parts of the Next Nature DVD and reprint the Real Nature is not Green essay. Nature transforms along with us!

Recently, I was interviewed by Blocter.com. We had a nice day in the Dutch dunes. We inspected the Scottish highland cattle that acts as a replacement for the long extinct wild aurochs in the Dutch landscape and looked at cellphone antenna trees – a regular mast would, of course, spoil the landscape. Here is the Video of the Interview.
