Loneliest Whale in the World
In 1992, naval scientists discovered a blue whale that sings at 52 hertz — a higher frequency than others of its species. After naming the whale "52 Blue" for his unique song, scientists also found the whale travelled alone, secluded from other whales. When the public received the news, the headlines began to pour in: "Loneliest Whale in The World," "No Whale Can Hear Him," "The Whale Whose Unique Call Stopped Him From Finding Love." But is 52 Blue lonely or are we projecting human emotions onto the natural world? My goal was to echo themes of loneliness and solitude while questioning the projection of human emotions on the natural world.
