Nature is an artifact. No more real than its complement culture, nature is a notion constructed to organize a disorganized world. Derived from mined silicon and metal, digital technology is born of the raw earth as much as it’s coming to replace it—especially as our myopic destruction of the environment necessitates further and further “artificial” interventions. As the concept of nature is pushed to its brink, maybe all that can serve us now is the supernatural. After all, if the reports are right, the Anthropocene can’t last for long.
