Design Inspiration

This Steampunk-inspired Whale Tail represents what will happen to our world in the future if we don’t look after it today: The year is 2121. Oil ran out decades ago, but the temperature of the earth continues to rise. The oceans have been decimated and it is thought that whales are extinct, including in the Hauraki Gulf. Inventors have created mechanical whales to try to show their children what these majestic animals were like. These machines are crafted from recycled tin cans, some of which still have their labels showing.
