A beautifully illustrated art book narrated by an AI called “Satyr”
Chimera is a 60-page illustrated hardback bestiary showcasing a leap forward in organic technology. An introduction to the function and backstory of these sophisticated fusions of beast and machine.
With functions ranging from surveillance to military duty and medical aid, these distinct creatures are integral to the structure of this future world.
These Chimera can be found inhabiting every corner of the globe – from farmyard fields, to city streets and in people’s homes. Always present, always watching.
Mankind will never be alone again.
CHIMERA is told from the perspective of BPHmt 696 – the artificial intelligence that oversees this very possible future world, and one of the most complex self-aware entities ever created. It sees itself as a benevolent parent figure – safeguarding mankind and working for and with humans for a better and more efficient society .
Not all humans see the AI as beneficial to their lives. A human resistance has emerged and it’s very different view of the AI has led to them referring to it by another, more sinister name – SATYR! Rather than reject this name, SATYR has embraced this new identity.
CHIMERA is the culmination of the work on remote surveillance I started with my comics series CCTVYLLE. But whereas CCTVYLLE was a modern day parable of what was to come – CHIMERA is my vision of a fully realised future for humanity.
