Imagine that in the not-too-distant future, there are no lakes, flowers or birds. Everything is just an installation. It will be presented to you by two people from the future – scientists. They will show you where life started, and tell you what a forest, the seasons, an anthill, fungus, spiders and whales are. They will demonstrate a sunset, the ocean and coral. You’ll see the reasons why things are different now, just in a lab, and why we don’t have lakes or flowers, why the bees are artificial, and why Dusia is sick. And what can we do to get nature back?
