The quote of the day by thise who left today "Intelligence is based on how efficient a species became at doing the things they need to survive.” 지능은 종족이 생존에 필요한 일을 얼마나 효율적으로 하는지에 근거한다. “If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week.” "내게 다시 한번 삶의 기회가 주어졌다면 적어도 매주 한번 정도는 몇몇 시를 읽고 음악을 듣는 규칙을 세웠을 것이다.

Charles Darwin (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory.

191 “Mule” 2017
(speculatively) 4,800-4,500 ya-present. Extant. Mule: Equus ferus caballus (horse) female x Equus africanus asinus (donkey) male (the reciprocal cross is called a hinny). The mule, probably the most well-known real-life hybrid, is a result of two different "species" called horses and donkeys interbreeding to produce sometimes-fertile offspring. Yes, you read that correctly, female mules are occasionally fertile. #livinganimals #hybrids #mulesofinstagram #horsesofinstagram #donkeysofinstagram #speciesconcept #ernstmayr #zoology #biology #humansareanimals #evolutionarytheory #essentialism #beautiful #miraclemules #everythingisconnected #Equusferuscaballus #Equusafricanusasinus

190 “Mary Had a Little Geep” 2017
(speculatively) 10,000 ya-present. Extant. Geep (shoat): Capra aegagrus hircus (goat) x Ovis aries (sheep).
Real-life goat-sheep hybrids are found in nature, where the two different "species" called goats and sheep interbreed to produce fertile offspring. "Species" is an essentialised tool we apply to observed nature based on prototypes – "pure types" that honestly do not exist except in idealised (and therefore unreal) abstractions. Sheep were domesticated 10,500ya and goats 10,000ya — there likely have been some hybrids right from the get-go.

188 “Homo sapiens sapiens” 2017

ca. 300,000 ya-present. Extant (at the time of press). Human: Homo sapiens sapiens (modern human) x Homo sapiens neanderthalensis (Neanderthal); Homo sapiens sapiens (modern human) x Homo sapiens ssp. Denisova (Denisova hominin); Homo sapiens sapiens (modern human) x mystery hominin; (speculatively) Homo sapiens sapiens (modern human) x Homo erectus; Homo and/or Australopithecus (hominin) x Pan troglodytes (chimpanzee). Modern humans are a real-life hybrid, where multiple different "species" called Homo sapiens (sapiens) and Homo sapiens neanderthalensis and the Denisovans interbred to produce offspring. Modern humans originated in Africa, but along the way we interbred with other hominins. All Asians, Native Americans and Europeans are part Neanderthal (Africans, the "purest" Homo sapiens, have a slight amount), and East Asians and Native Americans also are part Denisovan along with a mystery, undiscovered hominin. (Or at least I am, according to a programme I used to process my mother’s raw DNA results to compare with Denisovan sequences, likely due to trace Native American admixture reported by 23andme.) That's all in addition to potential Homo erectus admixture (and chimpanzee admixture from 4 million years ago). Good times for all (let us hope).

187 “Bonobo-Chimpanzee Hybrid and Rheboon Engage in Good-Natured Inter-specific (x4) Scramble Competition” 2017
(speculatively) 2 mya-present (bonobo-chimpanzee hybrid)/(at least) 1999 CE-present (rheboon). Both extant. Bonobo-chimpanzee hybrid: Pan paniscus (bonobo) x Pan troglodytes (common chimpanzee)/Rheboon: Macaca mulatta (rhesus macaque) x Papio hamadryas (hamadryas baboon). Bonobo-chimpanzee hybrids exist both in captivity and in nature (wild chimpanzee admixture was found to contain bonobo admixture, too). Bonobos and chimps diverged 2 million years ago, and occasionally have interbred since, now most often in captivity because their “territories” finally overlap which – separated by the Congo River – almost never occurs in the wild, though apparently it must have at least once. Yes, the contemplative rheboon shown here exists in real life, too.

183 “Roseman” 2017
35 mya-present. Extant (at least the rose element). Rosa (“Cherry O!” standard rose).
Human-rose chimera. Extremely unlikely, but we’ll see. A sweet male growing roses. The last common ancestor of humans and plants is unknown, but it likely lived ca. 1.6 billion years ago. Hybridism between humans and roses, as pretty of an idea as it is, is extremely unlikely. Or not, to be revealed in the next section.

179 “The Magicians” 2017
7,000 ya-present. Extant. Cavia porcellus (guinea pig, cavy).
Dedicated to the memory of Machu Pigchu and Julio Piglesias. My ex was allergic to dogs and I to cats, so guinea pigs it was. I loved having guinea pigs. Machu and Julio purred adorably and "popcorned", kicking high into the air when excited, alongside making "wheek-wheek-wheek" noises when food was imminent, amongst many other vocalisations. Our guinea pigs were highly spoiled and my ex built a six-foot open-plan enclosure for them in the living room (cleaned regularly). Like humans, guinea pigs are extremely social and should never be housed solitarily. Ours was a loving and very bonded male couple. Wikipedia plays down guinea pig same-sex sexual behaviour as "dominance simulations", but this is typical for explaining away same-sex animal behaviour and had to have been written by someone with little evolutionary understanding of bisexual animal behaviour, which is common in most social animals, including humans and non-human apes, dolphins, birds etc., and likely evolutionarily selected due to the long-term advantages of reciprocal altruism. If interested further, I recommend RC Kirkpatrick’s 2000 article “The Evolution of Homosexual Behaviour” & the books “Homosexual Behaviour in Animals: An Evolutionary Perspective” by Volker Sommer (my PhD supervisor!) and Paul Vasey; and “Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity” by Bruce Bagemihl.

178 “Good Understanding of Derived Traits” 2017
ca. 8,000 ya-present. Extant. Gallus gallus domesticus (chicken).
Saint-chicken-chimera. Chickens show Machiavellian intelligence, with males making food calls to attract females for mating purposes, even when no food is around. They also show empathetic reactions, and their cognitive abilities in general may be as high as that of other birds, as well as mammals (cf. Marino 2017). We tend to think they’re stupid, likely due to the fact that we eat them and therefore resort to objectification to mitigate our guilt (Ibid.).

10,500 ya-present (domestic cat)/ca. 400 ya-present (domestic canary). Both extant. Felis silvestris catus (domestic cat)/Serinus canaria forma domestica (domestic canary).
Strasbourg cat-angel-chimeras with non-chimeric canary. Mmm. Birds. I can withstand anything but temptation.

173 “The Last of the Really Great Dog-Whangdoodles” 2017
(speculatively) 30,000-14,700 ya-present. Extant. Canis lupus familiaris (dog).
This title referencing a saintly dog-chimera is a little random and I honestly cannot remember why I named it that. There was a chimeric character in a children’s novel I liked growing up called The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by actress Julie Andrews and I suppose I was referring to the eponymous whangdoodle’s monstrous qualities (I was highly attracted to chimeric monsters even as a smaller child – picturebook favourites included William Stieg’s The Bad Island a.k.a. Rotten Island, a “rotten, horrible, awful, burning hot, freezing-cold and rocky island” where all the monsters killed each other upon the sight of a beautiful flower; as well as the creepy chimeras found in Babar and Zephir). Whangdoodles seem to have been first described in a satirical sermon by William P. Brannon in 1858 (“where the lion roareth and the whangdoodle mourneth for her first-born”); later by Roald Dahl in James and the Giant Peach [1961] as looking like centipedes; and finally in Andrews’ 1974 novel as (I cite Lady Wikipedia here) “an intelligent, ungulate-like character capable of changing colour to suit its emotions, from whose hind legs grow a new and different set of bedroom slippers each year”). To be honest, I look at this art piece now and I don’t see a whangdoodle; since @inkyfilm mentioned it, I only can see Sigmund Freud’s face on a dog’s body. God knows what Sigmund would say about that.

So many times we ignore the fact that scientists are also human beings and so we're attached to a particular way of seeing things.
.
Thanks to the scientific method, we generate a lot of data. But then, this data have to be interpreted. And these interpretations, inevitable, will be conditioned by the cultural background of the person who made it.
.
We're elaborating odd and convoluted explanations to fit the data into "the theory", because "the theory" has no relationship with the facts we're studying.
.
We NEED to change the scientific paradigm. We NEED to elaborate a new hypothesis which will be able to give some coherence to the data we have, in order to progress in a real way.
.
This is a call for all open-minded scientists around the world. .

4 April 2018
终于在这天所有工作才算真正结束了。
大学第二个 Event--- #CWW2018 Counselling & Wellness Week。因为在下乡,经历很多学习很多加上 这个 event筹备并不是自愿参与的,明明是 publicity 偏偏都是男生。各种原因之下,一切都不太看好。

匆匆忙忙办了 Workshop talk 反应不热烈,虽然 feedback 不错大家却还是失望了吧~虽然之后大家还是靠自己振作起来没日没夜赶 deco继续办 exhibition ,期望不再高却反而反应热烈😎
#Happiness #Fear #Sadness #Anger
半年时间大家摩擦争执共患难 还是有感情、以为没啥大事却 还是学到了些、以为整个dep男生不能适应 还是活了下去😂 #EvolutionaryTheory  从刚开始和一班男生做事很尴尬 催到我没气,到一直赶 deco 熟悉起来 渐渐从相处中发现你们一些小小的过人之处 运用起来🌚 尤其个个都是比我厉害的人物 不容易,哈哈!W细心能写,E有想法,B能对抗,I有经验,J能设计,S稳重,我大概只负责‘疯’这个伟大又神圣的任务吧 哈哈哈哈 虽然这个后宫每天辣来撩去,可是最暖的是不管我做什么你们比其他人更支持我~在我不确定的时候给的建议、不知道能不能行通摇摆不定时候给的帮助 都是最暖心的支持🙈
虽然过程是蛮煎熬 收获却很多。
以为终于要脱离苦难了 却开始有点想念了。
如果说最庆幸的是什么 就是认识你们和你们一起做事,最不舍得什么 也是你们🙆
#CWW2018
THE END.

156 “Beautiful-Eyed Pig Chimera Tries to Figure Out What Is Going On” 2017
ca. 2.588 mya–781,000 ya-present. Extant. Sus (pig).
Pigs are sometimes considered to be a subset of wild boars, similar to the way some biologists consider dogs to be a subset of wolves, or the way some biological anthropologists (e.g., me!) consider modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans to be subsets of Homo erectus. We who lump species together often use the "biological species concept" conceived by biologist Ernst Mayr where if you can interbreed and have fertile offspring, you're the same species. We're called "lumpers" as opposed to "splitters", and many of us (me!) consider species to be an artificial, essentialised concept in the first place.

153 “Allofathering” 2017
3 mya-present. Extant. Pavo cristatus (Indian peafowl).
Saint-peacock-chimera. In contrast to the so-called Sexy Son Hypothesis, newer studies show that many females from many species choose “nice”, less aggressive males, rather than peacocking so-called men’s rights activists. Charles Darwin did not appreciate the singular beauty of the peacock tail: “the sight of a feather in a peacock's tail, whenever I gaze at it, makes me sick!”. #evolutionarytheory #teachingscience #impossibleanimals #femalechoice #hybrid #peacocksofinstagram #peacocking #derivedtraits #sexualselection #surrealism #expressionism #artbrut #darwinian #alloparenting #monstrousmasculine #Pavocristatus

131 “The Raven Tree” 2017
17 mya (Corvidae in general)–present. Extant. Corvus (here represented by Corvus corax, a.k.a. common raven, northern raven).
Multiple chimeras on one mysterious tree. There is no real difference between a raven and a crow. Ravens, magpies, crows, jays, rooks, jackdaws, tree-pies, choughs: corvids all. Corvids show grieving behaviour, empathy, theory of mind and many other so- called “human” traits. Relatedly, I was given the name Kiirik by a village elder at birth (not on my birth certificate), as my parents lived in the Iñupiat village of Ulġuniq, where the practice of naming new babies after the recently deceased is practiced. A kiirik is a type of Alaskan corvid called a camprobber, in this case probably a Steller's jay, Clark's nutcracker or Black-billed magpie, since Ulġuniq is far north of the Arctic Circle and above the tree-line.

123 “Swipe Right: Amused Proconsul Observes the Other End of the Scala Naturae Meme” 2017
ca. 25-23 mya. Extinct. Proconsul.
Well, it took us 4.28 billion years to do it in this Impossible Animals art project, but at last we’ve made it to the primates, here chimerized. Proconsul is theorised to be the last common ancestor of all seven living apes: humans, chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, orangutans, siamangs and gibbons. We usually only see Proconsul in the false but familiar scala naturae, which incorrectly shows primate evolution as a progression from lesser species en route to the crowning glory of human exceptionalists: the inevitably European, inevitably adult male Homo sapiens sapiens. Like all apes – including us – Proconsul had no tail. #primateevolution #primatology #greatapes #scalanaturae #evolutionarytheory #humanexceptionalism #naturalselection #paleoanthropology #hominin #physicalanthropology #biologicalanthropology #miocene #missinglink #gradualism #lastcommonancestor #surrealism

This morning I have been reading about the evolutionary theorist William Hamilton. When he died he wanted to be laid out in the Brazilian rainforest and used as a nest for a particular beetle so the babies would eat him and then emerge from his corpse. He makes it sound so beautiful - quite down with this idea tbh. #beetle #insects #entomology #evolution #evolutionarytheory #death #eatme #abugslife #morningmusingsonmortality 🐞🐜🐞🐜

🐾 I visited a good old ecuadorian friend in Quito, the capital of Ecuador 🇪🇨 and flew from there to 📍Galapagos Islands, which belong to the territory of Ecuador. How badly I wanted to visit the Galapagos Islands once in my life! Then I came there and figured out that everything is incredibly overpriced. I knew it would be an expensive trip, but I was shocked how they increase prices artificially. But maybe it is good in the sense that the mass tourism stays away, at least for now. The shores of San Cristobal are full of colonies of sea lions, that relax on the beaches.
Whenever there was an opportunity, I took a swim in the ocean to snorkel and dive surrounded by sea lions, which where chasing each other, playing around. That time I got a bit too close to one of the sea lions and almost got bitten. The photo caught me trying to escape from the attack. What can I say, Galapagos.. stunning wild life and the landscapes look unreal, what kind of makes up for the incredibly high prices. 🐢🦈🏊🏼‍♂️🦎🐾 #sancristobal #galapagos #ecuador #darwin #evolutionarytheory #exploring #snorkeling #diving #wildlife #nature #sealions #swimmingwithsealions

“Over time, basset ears evolved to meet their unique napping needs. Although the long ears may seem impractical and do pose a tripping hazard, they serve a very specific function critical to basset survival - blocking out bright daytime light and allowing the basset to get those many extra hours of sleep.” -Dozer 🐶💤

Today is #DarwinDay so we have sought out some of the natural history material in our #collections at #LambethPalaceLibrary including this #handcoloured image of a #finch (V111 4.04). #Darwin studied the variations of finches during his #visit to the #Galapagos Islands, discovering several species that varied from #island to island. The differing shapes of their beaks was one of many observations which informed his theory of natural selection - he noted that this feature of the bird had adapted and evolved to suit their different needs and feeding habits to ensure that the fittest survived. #naturalhistory #wildlife #evolution #EvolutionaryTheory #floraandfauna #birds #ornithology #rarebooks #specialcollections #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #CharlesDarwin

109 “Rainy Day Antelope” 2017
55 mya-present. Extant. Antilope cervicapra (Indian antelope).
And a rainy day and night as I painted this chimera, as well. Antelopes are technically Bovidae (cattle) but also share features with Cervidae (deer), highlighting the fact that current taxonomy (including binomial nomenclature) is an artificial and sometimes problematic tool when organising the diversity and messiness of life.

Early research on fashion has provided the foundation we have today and debunked some things we hold true. Like women care more about what they look like than men. It turns out, men are often more self-conscious than females when it comes to their fashion choices and the way that they are perceived.
.
Why is fashion important? It conveys the way we feel, think about ourselves and our behavior and in-turn the way that people convey us and how they behave around us! Some of these behaviors and feelings are conscious, some are not.

87 “Pterodactyl with Human Hands Gripping Tight to Sword-Billed Hummingbird Chimera Prey, Causing It to Lose Not Only Its Neapolitan Ice-Cream But Imminently, Come Feeding Time, Its Life” 2017
150.8–148.5 mya (pterodactyl)/10.7 mya-present (sword-billed hummingbird). Extinct/extant. Pterodactylus (pterodactyl, a.k.a. “winged finger”)/Ensifera (sword-billed hummingbird).
So many flavours, why commit? Never cared much for chocolate or strawberry, though I always appreciated the choice. I approve of the many-different-small-dishes approach of Turkish and Korean cuisine. Probably how the pterodactyl fed on insects, fish, small dinosaurs and, in this anachronistic case, outsized chimeric sword-billed hummingbirds.

83 “Green in Tooth and Claw (Praying Armadillo Lizard)” 2017
199 mya-present (squamata lizards). Extant. Ouroborus cataphractus (armadillo lizard, a.k.a. armadillo girdled lizard, golden armadillo lizard, armadillo spiny-tailed lizard).
Squamata lizards, of which the armadillo lizard is a representative, evolved roughly 199 million years ago. Here a saintly chimeric version prays and preys.

78 “Convergence (One of These Things is Not Like the Ichthyosaur)” 2017
248–90 mya (ichthyosaur)/226 mya-present (mosquito)/195-190 mya (dimorphodon)/56-33.9 mya-present (bat)/3.9-28.1 mya-present (seagull)/6 mya-present (coho salmon)/1,753-1,598 ya-present (goldfish). Icthyosaur and Dimorphodon extinct, all others extant. Ichthyosauria (ichthyosaur)/Culicidae (mosquito)/Dimorphodon/Chiroptera (bat)/Laridae (seagull)/Oncorhynchus kisutch (coho salmon, a.k.a. silver, achvuun)/Carassius auratus (goldfish).
Multiple chimeras. One of these things is not like the other — no surprise, it's the ichthyosaur! The ichthyosaur was an extinct swimming reptile with a similar body shape to fish (here exemplified by the spawning-season male coho salmon of my Alaskan youth, plus the more domestic goldfish). Convergent evolution is the emergence of similar traits in only distantly related organisms, often developing from similar environments. Thus we see (pun intended) that the eye has evolved independently multiple different times in very different animals. Other common convergent physical traits are vaginas, penises, colouration, etc. – and frequently body shape, seen in the real-life versions of this artwork's salmon, goldfish and ichthyosaur (also a body shape seen in aquatic mammals, e.g., cetaceans and seals, not shown here). Convergent evolution also resulted in differently derived flying animals, all adapted to a three-dimensional air environment, all independently developing wings: here, insects (mosquito), birds (seagull), mammals (bat) and reptiles (Dimorphodon). Some theorists argue that behaviour too is convergent (cf. Blackledge & Gillespie 2004) and some have argued, I think correctly, that the "invention" of agriculture is instead an example of cross-cultural human behavioural convergent evolution (cf. Rosenberg 2015).

77 “Chimeric Greenbeard Cricket Attempts to Figure Out the Best Method of Socially Cheating Not Only Its Conspecifics But Also a Species of Cooperative Plants” 2017
250–200 mya-present. Extant. Gryllidae (cricket).
Once a cheater, always a cheater. This depiction is pretty much the antithesis to Pinocchio’s Jiminy.

70 “Exploitation, Regret” 2017
298.9–251.9 mya-present (aphid)/100 mya–present (ant). Both extant. Aphidoidea (aphid, a.k.a. plant lice, greenfly, blackfly, whitefly)/Formicidae (ant).
Saint-ant-chimera with non-chimeric aphid. Humans aren’t the only animals that exploit their own and other species; ants do, too, famously farming and “milking” aphids for their sugary excretions, with some aphid species so domesticated they no longer can excrete on their own without the assistance of ant-farmers. Of course, humans themselves also exploit ants as food and medicine, along with multiple other animals. Meat, necessary or not to a predator and leaving aside questions of morality, is always inter-species exploitation. Red in tooth and claw and also red in the omnivorously evolved teeth of all Old World Monkeys, including humans.

68 “Extinction: The Tully Monster” 2017

With human eyeballs. Tullimonstrum’s name reminds me of twee-pop band Tullycraft, whose music I have always liked.

64 “Raging Dragonfly-Chimera” 2017
325 mya-present. Extant. Odonata (dragonfly).
Saint-chimera. Shiny but non-hexagonic eyes, as this dragonfly happens to have a human head. Not really sure what this dragonfly has going on to be so angry about, but that's how the painting came out. It also came out looking disturbingly like a Lord of the Rings character (Legolas makes quite a pretty fly for a white guy).

62 “Extinction: Jaekelopterus Gives Up” 2017
390-390 mya. Extinct. Jaekelopterus ([palaeontologist] “Otto Jaekel's wing”).
Worth remembering that this extinct animal – envisioned here as a saintly chimera reduced to its knees – was a frigging 2.5 metres (over 8 feet) across. The human animal, destroyer of ecosystems, is (with a few exceptions) a much smaller and more fragile animal. We all live in a closed system. Everything we do on this planet affects us personally.

57 “Rhapsody in Pink and Blue: Chimeric Millipede” 2017
428 mya-present. Extant. Diplopoda (millipede).
Millipedes were among the first land animals, 420 million years ago. Like other wiggly animals such as the centipede directly above, their tastiness lured our own ancestors, who were fish, onland.

ca. 497-485.4 mya–present (land slug)/252 mya-present (geoduck). Both extant. Ambigolimax (slug)/Panopea generosa (geoduck).

34 “Extinction: Wiwaxia” 2017
520–505 mya. Extinct. Wiwaxia corrugata.
Chimera. Wiwaxia was an espresso-cup-sized Cambrian animal that went extinct, like 99% of all species that have ever existed. You will, too. At both a personal and species level. If you're lucky, your descendants will evolve into something else, just like we are the lucky descendants of the longest-living human species ever, Homo erectus. Who, if you count us, are technically still around, if you're a species-lumper as opposed to species-splitter. Which I do, and I am.

30 “Resilient Tardigrade Checks Out the Evolutionary Success of Even Smaller Animals” 2017
530 mya–present. Extant. Milnesium tardigradum (sea bear, sea pig, water bear, space bear, space piglet).
First evolved over half a billion years ago, this saintly eight-legged chimera is still around today, one of the most resilient animals that has ever existed, withstanding great heat, cold, starvation and extreme radiation.

2 “Diplotheca Develops a Five o'Clock Shadow Already at the Dawn of Organic Life” 2017
(speculatively) 965 mya-present. Extant. Diplotheca.
Diplotheca, when not shaving or undergoing the chimeric qualities I have forced upon it here, is a still-existing organism, currently classified as a fungus. Diplotheca (again, speculatively) was our last common ancestor with fungi, after we divorced ourselves from those irritating "plants". Or plants divorced themselves from us, you never know; it always depends on who's telling the break-up story, doesn't it. Always remember that you are more closely related to a mushroom than a pine tree.
