The Whale Book by Jun Wang 

In summer 2013, a humpback whale was spotted floating and sleeping in Inside Passage, Alaska. As it sleeps, scientists found that it breathes roughly every three minutes, which differs from the sleeping pattern of humans. Jun was fascinated by the whale’s biological clock, and human's attempt to study other creatures using a self-centred method by comparing the others against themselves.
A set of prints was created as hand-drawn combined into a book as a fake documentation indicating the whale's ‘breath moments’. 
Edition of 30
Risograph, digital print and handdrawn
