Whales whisper in the dark

In this blog entry we give you a sneak preview showcasing atmospheric film stills taken while documenting conservation work on the whales by freelance film maker Robert Rapoport.

Robert is completing a PhD at Oxford University (Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art) focusing on film theory. Inspired by our blog, he contacted us with the prospect of producing a short film, highlighting the ‘poetic fusing of craft and science’ that takes place during conservation.

We present you with two collages made of Robert Rapoport’s film stills:

In a future blog entry, we hope to share Robert’s film with you- we can’t wait to see it ourselves 🙂

Acknowledgements:
We wish to thank Robert Rapoport for kindly sharing his time, expertise, vision and images with us!

Gemma Aboe, Assistant Conservator
