The Wild Book of Inventions



In essays, poems, sketches, and photographs, twenty authors challenge the exclusive human claim to intelligence.

Can contemporary art's practitioners change the way we perceive nature? In The Wild Book of Inventions, twenty authors employ a variety of forms, including speculative essays, poems, pencil sketches, and photo essays, to 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.
