The idea of bred in captivity is itself one of conflicting morals, where though the creature will never know of its true habitat, it will also never have a chance to miss home. The way that cultural rifts, borders and shifts are dynamically altering from one generation to the next today, the chance to see the such an idea in a micro scale gave it an interesting sense of intrigue.
Such a scientifically charged space, being seen in line with the vast and untouched landscapes of Ireland, and stories of Druids and Lochness around every corner gave an entirely different entry into the relationship of landscape, sea, man and nature.
