Blue Whale Variations - Dakota Parobek

After the death of her mother, Paula and her father Al struggle to navigate their grief while their neighbors Charlie and Andy adjust to their new home, all under the looming shadow of a mysterious Blue Whale. Utilizing sound, music, and environmental installations, Blue Whale Variations is an investigation of the precariousness of identity, love, and the construction of meaning in the shadow of loss.
