            Abstract

            The Descent of Inanna is one of the earliest myths of humanity – a story that encodes within it the transit of the planet Venus and her Sumerian archetypal representative – the goddess Inanna, Queen of Heaven. With performer Anna-Helena McLean and staff at Ravensbourne University, we are creating a VR performance piece in Ravensbourne’s HoloPortal to draw out the essential information within this story utilising the ancient technology of myth-making.
