Whale Watch in October is a new body of work made as a daily practice of “whale watching”.
Each day a new entry will be added to the calendar as an invented form of direct observation using my own heartbreak and devotion for a species and their stories that are so close to my heart.
The entire work is in the memory of Snake Eyes #1226, a 40-year old male Right Whale whose magnificent body was found decomposing in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of New York on September 16 , 2019 after dying from entanglement with rope. It is in his spirit this work is made. He got his name from the two white circles on the top of his head that look just like snake eyes.
