From a Whale's Back
What might it mean to be oceanic? To act in the world from a place of oceanic consciousness? "From a Whale’s Back" is an installation that explores the visual and sonic underwater world inhabited by whales of different species - orcas, humpbacks and minkes - from Antarctica to the northeastern Pacific. It uses video taken from tags used by scientists to monitor whales. From A Whale’s Back explores the latest technology for researching behavioral characteristics of whales, using tags suction-cupped to the back of the whale.
