“I opened mind in terror. The idea so possessed my mind,
that a thrill of fear ran through me, and I wished to
exchange the ghastley image of my fancy for the realisties
around.”

Mary Shelley, 1831

Prometheus (2008) is an Online project exploring the relationships between realities, the virtual reality, and the real one; posing the questions, “What is real?” “Where are we?”

Based on the work of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1831), the project explores the isolated creature in his challenges to adapt to the world he lives in. His birth and conception have become the destruction of him.

Prometheus is being exhibited on the
18th March 2008 between 2pm and 5pm
at the Unity Theatre, 1 Hope Place, Liverpool
,
and will also be uploaded to SecondLife where, those with avatars in SecondLife will be able to watch a Computer Generated version in Coventry University’s Island (coordinates 31-25-31). More information is also available at www.frankenbeaumont.co.uk
