Rake Marx

Inspired by the "Black Fish" documentary, this collection includes three adult orca silhouettes and one orca calf silhouette that have intricate lettering representing rake marks that are present on captive orcas bodies. Each orca's rake marks represent a feeling that they must have bottled up, something they would most likely say if they were able to communicate fluently with us. What would you say if you were kidnapped and kept in a room your whole life?
  • "Set us free and let us be, we are not a Jester for you to see"

  • "We have spent far too much time swimming in slime, it is time for you to get on your knees, beg forgiveness and let us leave"

  • "What you have done to me far exceeds what we have done to human beings"

  • "Save me from humanity"
