An emotive light installation recreating Shakespeare's famous character as a hologram, elegantly poised during her last breaths in a tranquil water basin. The piece references Millais' famous painting of drowning Ophelia, recreating the scene in a convergence of classic literature, pre-Raphaelite art, and modern technology.
