This diptych animation was created as a visual component of Shima Iuchi’s gallery installation “Coastal Calls”.
Visual artist Shima Iuchi and sound artist Jean Routhier present this audiovisual collaboration piece that explores ideas of memory and communication. Tracing the vocal and migratory patterns of transient orca whales, the artists speak to the duality of dislocation and communion that embodies cultural and linguistic migrations. This work was exhibited at Powell Street Festival (Vancouver, Canada) and L.A. Artcore (Los Angeles, US) in 2010.
