I talked to a friend of mine after seeing a theatre play she made, and after a beer or two, three we came to the idea of working together on a play based on the evolution. I said I would love to make images for that. The idea was to project a slideshow of these images and someone would give a lecture based on that. That would be the basis for this play, the starting point, the audience going to a lecture about non existing species and their development.
One of the inspirations for this are fake-encyclopedias based on fantasy creatures. There were some made in the 70's of last century. I must confess that i do not own any myself, my knowledge is based on ThoughtsPages abut such works I came across online now and again, and what I remember reading when I was a child (but those memories are blurry, and there were only one or two that were in my parents book shelves).
Chances are the play will never be made, but I know for a fact that I will create images of non existing species from time to time.
