About the work
Classification Pending was partially inspired by artist Craig Walsh’s interest in the history of ‘creature sightings’ documented and discussed throughout the world (Loch Ness Monster, Tacoma sea serpent, Storsie, Megofeice and the Hawkesbury River Monster). This projection depicts a 3D animated organism based on a hybrid of the extinct Woolungasaurus, the common Eel, fork tailed catfish, Brisbane short-necked turtle and the mullet.
