Looking at some crazy-looking boids

Gonzo artist Ralph Steadman teams up with filmmaker Ceri Levy to present an imaginative display of 110 extinct bird illustrations. That is, some birds who actually lived on this planet, while many of them only exist in dreamworlds. Grist reporter Greg Hanscorn puts it elegantly: “Think John James Audubon on a lot of acid.” But of course, the creative exploration does lead to serious questions regarding the environment about us, what we’ve done to it, and who else may be living on it besides us, thus garnering a certain holistic ecocentric mindset necessary for the future of a green planet.
