Created in response to the opening of the exhibition “Moby Dick: Heart of the Sea” at the Rockford Art Museum in Rockford, Illinois on April 17, 2009 by Ashley Theissen and Christian Hardy. Ashley began the film as a project in her 2009 Spring Semester class in Melville and the Arts at Northern Kentucky University, taught by Bob Wallace. She and Christian expanded the film into its finished form so it could be exhibited as part of “Chasing Whales in Northern Kentucky: Local Artists Respond to Moby-Dick”, which ran from August through November 2009 at the Gallerie Zaum in Newport, Kentucky.
