The Shades of Lethe

In Greek Mythology the River Lethe was known as the river of unmindfulness and those who drank of its waters experienced complete forgetfulness. This new work in Claire Reika Wright's River of Memories series is a painter’s reflection on memory loss. If we lose our sense of time, place and memory we become detached from ourselves, disorientated and frightened. Wright has attempted to capture this coping with a kaleidoscope of fading memories by using a combination of colour, semi abstract shapes and textures, produced using real paint and pastels, and then manipulated using digital animation techniques. The sound track heightens the sense of foreboding and fear as the approach of ‘unmindfulness’ nears. This is a five and a half minute looping video.
