This poster was a visual exploration of the story of 52 Hertz, also known as the loneliest whale in the world. Scientists are stumped by the story of a whale who has spent its entire life traveling alone. 52 Hertz "sings" at a frequency that goes unregistered by its fellow whales, and no one is quite sure why. Typically social creatures, whales can suffer just as much damage from loneliness as humans can.
