The Diamond (Descartes' Daughter)

Wardill, Emily (2008) The Diamond (Descartes' Daughter). [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Wardill, Emily

The Diamond (Descartes' Daughter) takes as its starting point the mythical story of Descartes's construction of an automaton modelled on his dead daughter, and interweaves this narrative with a re-creation of a half-remembered film scene featuring a diamond protected by lasers.
