Title:
Blue Whale

Author:
Michael and Anna Rofka

Description:
We apply as a team. Our idea is to construct big blue whales in public space. We will make a construction with battens. The skin we'll make with plastic bags. We want that people bring backs, that they usually often throw away. People can also help to build the whales. We want to make these whales in the same size like real whales. Everyone does a small thing but the result is very large and perceptible to all. The large scale installation is like a symbol for the quantity of plastic waste. The whale is like a symbol for the sea. The places will be a places for discussions about the theme. The big installation is visible for everyone and it's a result of a lot of helping hands which do small actions.
