You see them through water and glass, (both liquids) and through air with plenty of liquid in it —water is moving through the air— you see the large dolphins animated, unfractious in their native drink, going back and forth interacting with some sort of rings—in a minute-long video— in a loop, we see these dolphins again and again looping through rings, in indirect discourse ringing through the loops. We see, you see, dolphins advertising something we don't have and we don't want; advertising exfoliants and astringents, humectants, which dolphins don't know about and wouldn't want if they did, the sloe-eyed ones. They make us feel free, silent. "Nature film, nature film!" See them in their independence through water and glass articulating dolphin home truths.
