The Future Whale Embassy
Variety of fabrics, ceramics, foam, wood, varnish, copper, iron, 3D print, acrylic glass
The whale is an animal humans have known since the birth of civilization, as resource, as product, as an industry, as an economy, as mythic creature. An embassy is a space to represent another country and culture, outside its national borders.
Experience and knowledge mix together while traveling. Tourism intertwines many complex things; social structures, capital operations, and media development. I had never seen a whale before, but there are already so many text and picture descriptions in my head. Watching-whales is believing in the future. In that future whales might not be living in the ocean.
