Of Whales is derived from Wu Tsang’s multidisciplinary research around Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick (1851). In the atrium of the Gropius Bau, surreal ocean environments are dynamically regenerated in real time by a virtual reality game engine. A 16-channel score blends horns, saxophone, clarinet and contrabass, unleashing a soundscape that fills the entire space and invites viewers to states of natural flux.
The installation is part of the exhibition YOYI! Care, Repair, Heal.
