The story point ...
Exiled to a life on dry land, Sirens Sarah and Aerica can do nothing but gaze out over an ocean they once called home. Does the Siren covenant exist as a barrier? Or is it the test of temptation, waiting patiently since the dawn of their kind, for one with the strength to move beyond and evolve.
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 35 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.
