A little Ophelia character study: Today I checked out the Ray Man exhibit at The Phillips Collection called “Shakespearean Equations” where he uses mathematical renderings turned paintings to represent 23 of the Bard’s plays. The one pictured above is, you guessed it, Hamlet! Man says that it represents Ophelia’s white skull and also her breast, a comment on the representation of women in the play, a fixation that Hamlet turned into abuse toward both Ophelia and his mother Gertrude. Super cool stuff! #dancenaked #Ophelia #R&G #folgertheatre #hamlet
