We sent whalesong into interstellar space because the creatures that sing these songs are superlative beings that fill us with awe, terror, and affection. We have hunted them for thousands of years and scratched them into our mythologies and iconography. Their bones frame the archways of medieval castles. They’re so compelling that we imagine aliens might find them interesting — or perhaps understand their otherworldly, ethereal song.

Made using prussian blue, white, unbleached titanium and a dash of grey, 50m tape, in 3 days. Crisp clean lines all round. Brush stroke visible under movement or light, further defining the shape, a continuation of my fascination with animal form.
