Dolphins are poetically synonymous to water, aside from cultural and
religious symbolism. The shimming sunlight reflected during the golden
hour on the dolphins is a metaphor for the ephemeral and precious water
and life itself. Cruel human industrialization has led to some species
extinct while others critically endangered.
Baiji, Vaquita porpoise, Maui’s dolphin, Hector’s dolphin, Indus and
Ganges River dolphins are presented in place of six white stripes and
seven red bands in between them to resonate the American flag. The fifty
stars are replaced with the up-side-down Eiffel Tower in a burnt blue
leaf background, a transformed symbol of the Paris Agreement.
The environmental catastrophes are obvious; rising global
temperatures, extreme weather fluctuations and wildfires are just a few.
The existential risks for other living beings environmentally coexist
with ours. Are the divine shimmering melodies of the precious life
sustaining oceans turning into screams of infernal bloodbath ?
