The installation's title is shared with the exhibition, and gestures towards the natural process and occurrence of a whale fall. Whale Fall oscillates between shipwreck and whale carcass: glowing from within, it is an otherworldly creature in its own right; a fleshy thing in a moment of arrested decay."
