Abstract

"Ophis," a large-scale immersive sculpture located in the basement of Donnelley and Lee Library, invites viewers to explore the idea of seduction both visually and tangibly. The structure references a body that is at once beautiful and grotesque, simultaneously attractive and repulsive. These dichotomies comprise a concept of seduction prevalent in Victorian art and literature that continues to permeate Western cultural attitudes toward female sexuality. This presentation details the theoretical foundation and formal choices essential to this creative thesis for the Art Department.
