Venus Self


The artist as Henry Courtney Selous conceiving “The Birth of Venus”, Venus Self depicts the goddess within the screen space, a digital interpretation of her being.

Her image is deconstructed and allows her to exist without a body.

Venus is fragmented, Venus is a file format, Venus zoomed in too much, Venus as a (kind of) tangible being, and Venus is ready for download.
