When I first encountered Kathleen Jamie’s Sightlines I was entranced by her unusual power of description. One of the most bewitching essays in the book (note: They are all good) is The Hvalsalen, in which Jamie recounts a visit she made to the University Museum of Bergen in Norway and its famous whale hall. The museum was kind enough to allow us access to their footage of the whale hall. We used it to create the video below.
