Future Generations


A conversation between an AI and a humpback whale.


It’s a conversation set in a time where human engagement is no longer required, but simply exists outside of our understanding, within the earthly consequences of human action. 


What would this conversation be?


Are we able to remove ourselves in order to embrace a language we do not understand? 


The historical debate on whether animal communication can be considered a language entangles the human definition of the term. A definition many have put considerable effort into upholding humanity at the top of the pyramid. 


This piece is meant to spark debate on the questions of where AI will lead the world and how will we react? If we could interpret this conversation, would we be willing to listen? Would we be able to adapt? Are we willing to place another source of life above our own? Or at an equal footing? 


The imagery is in reference to CETI in contrast to SETI. Both investigative projects, probing into  depths humanity cannot yet fathom. Utilizing innovations to establish constellations of communication, exploration and information. All in order to further our understanding of our reality. 


One looking below.        One looking above. 

From our human centred perspective.

CETI (Cetacean Translation Initiative)

is a nonprofit organization applying advanced machine learning and state-of-the-art robotics to listen to and translate the communication of sperm whales. Our research focus is in Dominica in the Eastern Caribbean. (Stacey chose to depict a Humpback whale instead of a sperm whale because of their familiarity)

SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence)

SETI’s mission is to lead humanity's quest to understand the origins and prevalence of life and intelligence in the universe and share that knowledge with the world.


Stacey was granted permission by the Ocean Alliance organization to use biologist, Dr. Roger Paynes’ first audio recordings of humpback whales. These recordings accompanied the Voyager 1 and 2 Spacecrafts, now beyond our solar system into interstellar space. 

His recordings and life’s work aided in the international whaling moratorium and the continued protections of ocean life. 

Dr. Roger Payne was also a principal advisor to the CETI Program.



Stacey’s work can be seen to follow the trajectory of her meanderings through investigations. Most often, she’s looking to place humanity in the larger scale of the universe and uses art as a means to interpret current understanding, global current events, cultural movements, and spark ideation.
