The Wild Book of Inventions

 - The Wild Book of Inventions
Twenty authors and artists reinvent our relationship to nature.
Can contemporary art's practitioners change the way we perceive nature? Employing a variety of forms that include speculative essays, poems, pencil sketches, and photo essays, twenty authors challenge the exclusive human claim to intelligence by pointing to, or inventing, new forms of coexistence for all life-forms. Far more complex than the necessary and continuous exercise of critique, these contributions introduce new ways to experience culture.
Edited by Chus Martínez.
