Marguerite Humeau – The rebirth of prehistoric creatures and the opera of prehistoric creatures.

The designer, who became the heroine of an epic journey, aims at resuscitating the sound of prehistoric creatures by reconstructing their vocal tract. Her ambition is to create an opera of prehistoric creatures.

The opera is performed by three creatures vocal tracts and their synthetic vibrating vocal cords: a Mammoth Imperator, an Entelodont aka “Terminator Pig” and an Ambulocetus aka “Walking Whale”.

‘Proposal for resuscitating prehistoric creatures’ is an opera which sets up the rebirth of cloned creatures, their wandering and their sound epic. They are seeking to evolve in our contemporary era.
The designer, who became the heroine of a quasi-mystic epic journey, aims at resuscitating the sound of prehistoric creatures by reconstructing their vocal tract. This is problematic from the scientific point of view: since the vocal tract is made of soft tissue, it does not fossilise. The only things that have been preserved through time are the surrounding bones. The inner parts have to be redesigned.
