Lady of Lethe

A digital sculpture created for the virtual reality art piece “Ocean”.
Lethe is a river from Dante’s Divine Comedy, which welcomes those who leave Hell. Bathing in the river would take away one’s memory, and wash away one’s sins.
“Ocean” is about the interdependence between life and death and the lady is caught in an ambiguous pose, leaving it up the viewer to decide whether she is rising or collapsing, bursting with life or slowly overtaken by a parasitic organism.
