I saw this installation in person a couple years ago in the Natural History Museum, and i find it pretty interesting. It is a 94 foot life size model of a blue whale. It is definitely considered a installation because it's a one of a kind piece and its made for this specific room. The scale of this piece is life-size, even though it's pretty hard to believe. There is also a color gradient from the top to the stomach. It goes to dark blue, to light blue, to white. The emphasis in the room is certainly on this piece. Even though this piece is in a Museum, it is definitely considered art.
