This time lapse video was taken by the talented photographer Heather Bauer between 7:30 - 8:15 on June 2, 2011 during "First Thursday on Main Street" in Columbia, South Carolina. It documents the performance art piece OPHELIA. This collaborative project was the vision of Susan Lenz who also modeled for the work. The graffitti-inspired "suicide note" on the back wall was created by Michael Krajewski. After the one-evening only "performance art", a large, framed photo was suspended above the bathtub ... replacing the mirror. This suspended photo was taken by Heather Bauer and Eric Parton during "dress rehearsal" on May 31th. It pictured Susan Lenz as Ophelia, the tragic Shakespearean character from Hamlet that was a popular subject for many Pre-Raphelite and Arts & Crafts painters.
