Ophelia

Ophelia is a kinetic art object created by a new technology of optical fibers transmitting a light image.

Inspired by John Everett Millais’ painting “Ophelia”. I’m breaking the stereotyped idea of a beautiful forever young woman and I’m using a portrait of an old lady instead.

She’s floating in the water as a homeless drowned in the sewage disposal plant.

The image was constructed by over 40 000 optical fibers floating in the water, surrounded by flowers.
