we definitely have to give more attention to all these guys, and this kind of work, soon...

this is almost a kind of a category in its own right, that can't really be reduced only to the "kinetic" aspect.

"making a new nature" is a good definition to start with, it could be good to extend it a bit more when possible. probably, there are not many works dealing with this kind of subjects, which makes it even more motivating.

the last two people have some works that are really beautiful, we'll need to get more information on them
