Aerica closes her eyes and reaches out to cast her Whispers to the mayhem of twisted threads that form the Plexus. The strength of her unique voice is a saltation, a leap in evolution so far into the future that it makes all others look primitive in comparison. Her parents were carefully paired to maximize potential for the sake of their Genus, but it was never meant for her. It was all intended for her celebrated older sister, destined to lead their clan. The revelation of Aerica's abilities is a shock to all, especially to herself. In an instant, her carefree happy life disappears forever.
Writing has long been a integral part of Mark Heine's creative process. In the pursuit of his original artistic voice, Mark's writing has evolved to become the driving force behind his work and has led him to envision a world of his own creation. Sirens, the culmination of 38 years exploration, is inspired by the sea-nymphs, made famous in Homer's Odyssey. These underwater visions of mythological muse are rooted in the moments of an ongoing and developing fictional narrative. This complex narrative, involving human evolution and our natural environment, is the unifying conceptual thread that ties these surreal visions.
