Cixin Liu’s Sea of Dreams

Liu, Cixin

An international collaboration involving 26 writers and illustrators from 14 different countries have transformed 15 of Cixin Liu’s – ‘China’s answer to Arthur C. Clarke’ (New Yorker) – award-winning stories into graphic novels.

It was the Ice and Snow Arts Festival that lured the low-temperature artist to Earth. Drawn by the beauty and technical skill of the sculptures displayed, the extraterrestrial visitor longed to collaborate and share its own art.

But while humans learnt to craft ice into exquisite ephemera, the low-temperature artist’s civilisation mastered the manipulation of whole worlds to create artworks – drawing on the seas and ice caps, and cooling their temperature to beautiful effect.

Faced with the inevitable devastation and heat death of their planet, humankind must use their final breaths to fight for existence. But the artist will only speak to one human: Yan Dong, the ice sculptor whose beautiful work first drew its eye.
