Design Inspiration

Embarking on research about whales, it occurred to me that whales, like humans, are mammals. Both species need to breathe oxygen to survive. How do whales sleep and come up for a breath at the same time? Do whales dream? The concept for my design reflects what a whale might see when coming up to the surface to breathe during the nighttime. Perhaps the whales are in some kind of a dream state. Using metallic and glow-in-the-dark paint, these ideas are translated through the fusion of the land and the night sky in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
