A Tale of a Whale

The project proposes an alternative strategy for the disposal of beached whales, whereby the body is treated as a rare natural resource and a sacred supernatural being. The whale carcass is given a final voyage through the sky, that ends in the ceremonial dissection and preservation of its bodily tissue, leaving only an elaborate framework of beautiful bones.
