Tristin Lowe, an artist based in Philadelphia, unveiled a massive project earlier this summer that pushes the limits of its room in the Fabric Workshop and Museum. His full scale,  52-foot whale is made with basic fabric and sewing techniques, but is sure to marvel with the barnacle appliques and inflated innards.

The project is named Mocha Dick, the inspiration for Melville’s elusive whale, and should stay on exhibit for another few weeks.  Lowe’s previous work, Alice, was a massive painted vinyl figure inflated to over twenty feet.  Mocha Dick is stunningly realistic from a distance and charmingly constructed up close.  We look forward to future immense art projects from Tristin Lowe and urge folks to check out the whale before it leaves.
