The Story point ...
Aerica contemplates her new life as an Orphan. Visits with her family are now limited to short shallow dips below the surface. She's spent her entire life exploring the depths of Mother Ocean. Now the water is painfully frigid and she can't even swim.
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.
