A recording of a priest who comments the book of Jonas and all our human fears, a clarinetist and a trombonist who imitate the sound of a whale with their instruments, the song Flying whales, a malaise when shopping at the supermarket. Sounds and images processing in real time. A fascination for blockbuster movies. A colonized thought we run away from. but not.

A collection of things who turns as turn-tables, kitchen objects, mixers, carrousels.
A hate-relationish with plastic. Some lecture of Moby Dick, but not really.

A cooking show. A whale watching tour.
A couple who have never loved each other, a girl who vomits everywhere, a shipwreck, some salt, some paraffin to make candles, a progressive love of the matter and the reality, hacked circular kitchen objects and a match of hockey.
