Mr Monkey started his tour of the exhibition by watching Qiu Anxiong's animation New Book of the Mountains and Oceans. This is a rather excellent, somewhat surreal, 25 minute long film about the world energy crisis. Mr Monkey was impressed by the landscapes at the beginning and the way in which technology was mixed with animal life to make hybrids such as scorpion/oilrigs, hawk/jets, elephant/tanks and armadillo/cars.
