An interactive, multi-sensory art exhibit featuring the bones of three whales - fin, minke and pilot whale - suspended in a dynamic and immersive display. Hung on monofilament line and suspended from a cable grid, the bones move and spin as the viewer interacts with them while walking inside the exhibit. Surrounding by net and the sounds of whales and boat traffic the patron examines into, and from within, the perspective of ‘the whale’ in both a literal and figurative BUMP between our worlds.

A life-sized model of a right-whale fluke was designed and manufactured to the specifications set forth by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) large-whale disentanglement team. The fluke has skin-like characteristics, floats, and is engineered to be towed behind a boat either on the surface or submerged. It is used to simulate entanglement scenarios and practice procedures during training for response to whales entangled in fishing gear.
