  • Dr Koert van Mensvoort – Artist – Technologist – Philosopher
    Founder & Director of the Next Nature Network

    Dr. Koert van Mensvoort is an artist 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. He uses all media to materialize his philosophy.

    Among his works are the NANO Supermarket (a traveling exhibition disguised as a supermarket that presents speculative future technologies), the Datafountain (an internet enabled water fountain connected to money currency rates), the book ‘Next Nature: Nature changes along with us’, the In Vitro Meat Cookbook (exploring the meat of the future), the documentary ‘Daddy! The Woods smell of Shampoo’, the Fake for Real memory game (on the tensed relation between reality and simulation) and the Rayfish Footwear project (about a fictional company that creates bio-customized sneakers from genetically engineered stingray leather)…
