Tales of a Sea Cow, between fiction and documentary, by Etienne de France

Tales of a Sea Cow, between fiction and documentary, by Etienne de France

Tales of a Sea Cow is a fictional film describing how a team of scientists working in Greenland has achieved the first ever decoding of animal communication.

Tales of a Sea Cow is a fictional story describing how a team of scientists working in Greenland has achieved the first ever decoding of animal communication. For the first time in history they “translated” the song of a marine mammal – the Steller’s sea cow-, a species, which was until now thought extinct since 1768.

This rediscovery of this species and the decoding of their songs have revealed striking results: the content of the decoding consists in endless lists and databases containing a precise monitoring of human activity.

Tales of a Sea Cow is a project mixing reality and fiction, art and science. Combining a fictional documentary and a multimedia project (installation, video, photography and sculptures), Tales of a Sea Cow is a dialog with scientific methodologies, but also a metaphor about interpreting nature and anthropomorphism.
