Delicate, complex drawings tell of a science-fiction world. Intelligent Sentient? feels like an artifact from another time; a lost feature in OMNI magazine, the album booklet for a late 1970s Hawkwind record, or perhaps a print version of Koyaanisqatsi. Beautiful, detailed, filigreed drawings fold in on themselves and blossom out at the reader. A loose story is told, one of a society of giant people, strange art, and inexplicable scientific experiments utilizing nonexistent technology. Factories and treehouses teem with life, and the city nestles up against a landscape filled with dinosaurs, apes, and dragonflies living peacefully side by side. Intelligent Sentient? is a series of images that tie together in progressing theme, the takeaway is that everything is connected. This book is meant to be read forward and back and returned to and treated like a mystical text.
