Crossings: Migratory traces

Inspired by a map showing the migratory paths of whales and various other marine species passing through the Kermadec region I have been experimenting creating images with long exposures of bubbles in a tank. Still in development but I am looking to print these huge and plan to explore carving the map and key data into the frame of the finished work.
