It compiles an extended description of the creature according to various modes of knowledge, perception and understanding, from ancient mythologies to natural sciences and exhibition design.
Shifting from a seemingly banal wildlife TV program about a sea creature towards a description of the physical and architectural conditions of its display in the aquarium, the film looks at how the image pre-exists its own recording, approaching the window of the aquarium as a display device that participates in the construction of the notion of the viewer.
The work was commissioned by LUX, a British film organisation, to be inserted between ads and feature films within a newtwork of commercial cinemas in the UK and Ireland.
It would take around 6 days and 11 hours to watch a two hour film if each shot of the program where the work is inserted was narrated in the same format as Pulmo Marina.
