The DOMINION exhibition and Whale Festival, held at Plymouth University in February 2011, was the first in of its kind in the UK. It explored the iconography of the whale in art, science and history, through film, music, poetry and gallery talks. In the process it became a unique celebration of the cultural links be- tween art and science, as seen through the abiding, mysterious shape of these extraordinary animals. DOMINION contains new essays by artists, writers, curators and scientists as well as images of Angela Cockayne’s work and evocative photographs of whales themselves.
