Taking Kate To Another Dimension
Artist and filmmaker Baillie Walsh has teamed up with top fashion mag AnOther Magazine to create the world’s first ever 3D fashion film.
The film, titled KM3D-1, stars Kate Moss who has previously collaborated with Walsh on a holographic film for Alexander McQueen’s autumn/winter 2006 show, in which she appeared floating in a transparent box on the catwalk.
According to AnOther Magazine her performance in KM3D-1 recalls ‘the fantastical cinema of Ray Harryhausen, James Bidgood and Kenneth Anger’. The magazine writes that the work ‘places at its centre one of the most iconic female figures of the modern age. Suspended in time and space, Kate is caught inexorably in the parallax gap; a butterfly in a spider's web’.
Now here’s the science bit – apparently the film was shot at 1,000 frames per second, creating the effect of extreme slow motion. The film premiered in London at the start of London Fashion Week and can now be seen on AnOther Magazine’s website, using 3D glasses available in the magazine’s September print edition.
