Vernie / Moradavaga


Invited by Walk&Talk festival to participate in its 6th edition on the island of São Miguel in the Azores, Moradavaga took inspiration from the rich sea life that exists in and around the Atlantic archipelago to produce a site specific piece of interactive art. Influenced by the stunning landscapes and the mystic aura related to all that concerns whale hunting (in the past) and observation (in the present) our mind wandered through old tales like Moby Dick, by Herman Melville, and 20.000 Leagues Under the Sea, by Jules Verne, and the presence of sperm-whales along the Azores coasts led us to devise a character, Vernie the giant squid, that came from the depths of the ocean to serve as a communicative playful tool for passers-by of all ages at Portas do Mar in the city of Ponta Delgada — via Vimeo
