We know what we are, but know not what we may be…

Three disparate stories of displacement, inspired by Shakespeare’s character,

are interwoven in this haunting and playful exploration of identity in a globalized world.

One thought on “Oph3lia”

  1. Katie-Ellen says:

    I have an prize winning artist friend, Janet Cook, resident in New York, who has done a beautiful and surereal oil painting of a contemporary ‘Ophelia’, in which she is depicted floating in the waters just off Manhattan.

    Would it be too late to send you an image of it, with a view to considering it for inclusion as an exhibit relevant to the celebration of ‘Oph3lia’? I am not sure whether it is available for sale.

    I could email an image or Janet could be contacted directly at janetAcook@aol.com
