“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Hyperart about Hyperobjects

I quite enjoy these. In particular I like how massive they are and how you can't see them fully on the ground. Reminds me of the Nazca lines. Like global warming itself, they are designed to loom over you like giant shadows. Makes me think of Shelley's “A Defense of Poetry”: poets are “the mirrors of the gigantic shadows that futurity casts upon the present.” That guy should've been a speculative realist.
