“WHALE FALL” means that when a whale dies in the sea, its body will eventually sink into the deep sea and feed all beings in the dark world for 15 years.


In recent years, marine pollution has become more and more serious, and many whales are on the verge of extinction. Many whales mistakenly eat the plastic pollutants that cannot be digested and decomposed. "WHALE FALL” means that when a whale dies in the sea, its body will eventually sink into the deep sea and feed all beings in the dark world for 15 years. Life quietly disappeared, but the traces of beauty remain.
최근 들어 해양오염은 나날이 심각해 지고 있으며 수 많은 고래들이 멸종 위기를 맞고 있다. 그중 플라스틱을 고래들이 음식으로 착각하고 먹고, 이를 소화 및 분해하지 못한다. “WHALE FALL”은 고래가 바다에서 죽으면 그 시체가 해저로 잠겨 15년 동안 어둠 속 생명들의 먹이가 됨을 의미한다. 생명은 고요하게 소멸한다. 그러나 아름다움은 흔적을 남기며 여전히 존재한다.


近年来,海洋污染日益严重,许多鲸类濒临灭绝。其中,塑料污染由于鲸鱼误食,无法消化和分解。"WHALE FALL"的意思是当鲸在海洋中死去,它的尸体最终会沉入海底,哺暗界众生十五年。生命悄无声息地消失了,但美丽的痕迹依然存在。
