Jody Sjogren has an entire metamorphosis series she has developed depicting man-made designs that draw their inspiration from designs in nature. Several of her prints in this series have already sold out, but she still has a small supply of Blackbird prints left that she has agreed to make available for the launch of our ID Arts Project.
The similarities between machines and living systems inspired artist Jody Sjogren to create “Blackbird,” a visual metamorphosis between the Raven and the SR-71 Blackbird. These two black avian knights share many attributes and functional capabilities. But the elegance and complexity of the bird’s features rival those of this Mach 3+ spyplane. With variable-geometry wings; on-board maintenance, repair, and refueling systems; and even the ability to reproduce itself, the Raven compels us to consider that intelligent design is as logical an explanation for the origin of living systems as it is for man-made machines. (Maybe not politically correct, but definitely logical!)
The Blackbird art print is available from ARN.
