Philip Hoare & Jessica Sarah Rinland in discussion 

Philip Hoare is one of the UK’s greatest writers of creative non-fiction and perhaps our most passionate advocate of marine ecology and culture, especially regarding the cetacaean (whales). His most recent book is The Sea Inside:

“The sea surrounds us. It gives us life, provides us with the air we breathe and the food we eat. It is where we came from, and it carries our commerce. It represents home and migration, ceaseless change and constant presence. It covers two-thirds of our planet. Yet caught up in our everyday lives, we seem to ignore it, and what it means”.

Hoare was joined by artist filmmaker Jessica Sarah Rinland, whose film The Blind Labourer was featured in the Whitstable Biennale 2014 artists' short film programme.

Together they made a new installation work - We Account the Whale Immortal - for Utopia 2016 at Somerset House.
