Sentience Dreaming

 

Timothy’s Inspiration:  I was thinking of the “predatory mollusk” in Moss’ work, and I wondered about the unique evolutionary path that cephalopods took, their manifest intelligence, and the flashing colors of their lucid dreams. I was inspired by the images of Heather Moss’ poem “Twelve: The Conflagration,” especially the lines: “When best to serve a chewable tablet / on a scalloped plate? An optical / illusion in billowing ink from / the predatory mollusk: do you / see the manta ray, or twin faces / staring hash marks into each other’s / dilated pupils?”

See the work that inspired Timothy here.
