An animated 6DoF VR series aimed at engaging young audiences with art by creating intimate, gripping and relatable experiences focused on the human stories behind some of the world’s greatest art and artists. Each episode uncovers themes from the artist’s context that resonate with contemporary life. This episode, The Light in the Shadow, explores the extraordinary story of one of today’s most celebrated Baroque artists: Artemisia Gentileschi. We follow her extraordinary journey as she navigates a time and world where women have virtually no rights and are essentially men’s property, and becomes one of Europe’s most celebrated and in-demand painters of her time. She painted herself into posterity within her own lifetime—this story is about how she rose up against the odds and impressed the whole of Europe with her talent, and how continues to capture our imaginations today.
