Publisher's Comments

Van Mensvoort and Grievink (both with Next Nature Network) present a compendium of the most thought-provoking observations from the Nextnature.net website, supplemented by new visual material and graphics and nine essays by guest artists. As part of the Next Nature philosophy, the book explores humans' changing concept of "nature" and changing relationship with nature. In particular, it reexamines the traditional notions of nature as "everything born" and culture as "everything made," to suggest a different conceptualization of nature as all that is beyond control and culture as all the things that humans control. Technology and nature are no longer opposed but rather viewed as capable of merging and/or trading places. The materials are bound together as a group of seven "magazines," corresponding to different aspects of the "next nature" concept. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
