The installation was originally Inspired by a scientific fact of oceanographic research that discovered a "52-Hertz whale", which calls at the very unusual frequency of 52 Hz. This pitch is a much higher frequency than that of the other whale species with migration patterns, means that no other whales able to hear it. Because of this, the animal has been called the loneliest whale in the world. In MyWhale installation, luminous hexagonal elements represent oscillatory activity in groups of neurons which arises from feedback connections between the neurons that result in the synchronization of their firing patterns.

MY WHALE
2019: PROSVET festival (Perm, Russia)
2016: D Museum (Seoul, South Korea)
Reimagined and bigger scale version of projection-based hexagonal installation "MyWhale" which was originally produced as a site-specific interactive installation by Tundra for "Brusov", a renovated ship, laid up on Moscow river and turned into an art-cluster.

The inner revision of "MyWhale" consists of nearly 600 laser-cutted projection mapped hexagons. The installation was specially made for "9 Lights in 9 Rooms" exhibition at D MUSEUM (Seoul, Korea). It was visited by more than 200 000 visitors during the period of exhibition 05.12.2016 - 08.05.2016.

There is an impressive space at the front of the ship, with panoramic windshield and hexagonal pattern on the vaulted ceiling, remained from the 80-s, the time, when "Brusov" was constructed in Austria. Standing there gives you the feeling of floating through the reflections of the Krymsky bridge lights on the river, inside a giant whale head. Looking through its eyes, listening to its songs that flow across the brain made of hexagonal cells by the wires hanging down here and there.

Each piece of the projection onto the cells was cloned from the previous one with a random changes. So each cell behaved differently, pulsating to the rythm of the whale songs. To interract with the whale the visitor could place the phone screen above the black box in the center of the room. Once the phone was above the box, the image from the screen bursted into visual patterns and audio fragments all over the cells, merging the precious moments of your life, stored at the phone, and the whale's imagination with the speed of light.
