Artist Statement:
The relationship between mankind and nature is obviously constant, and so are its effects in both directions. Sometimes these effects are clearly recognizable, sometimes are hidden, and sometimes are just not seen.The Beluga whale, because of its small size and its habits, has always been in direct relationship with humans, being subjected to hunting and being the first cetacean to be exploited alive in aquariums and zoos.

Moreover, the animal is very affected by water pollution and the effects of the warming climate. For all these reasons and following the idea of constant communication between mankind and nature, it could be seen as a living litmus paper. Another natural indicator from which to understand how the environmental balance is affected by human impact.
