Baillie Walsh created this 3D film with model Kate Moss for AnOther Magazine.
“Created by AnOther Magazine with artist and filmmaker Baillie Walsh, KM3D-1 stars Kate Moss. The work continues Moss and Walsh’s journey into experimental, multi-dimensional image-making, first seen in their legendary holographic film for Alexander McQueen’s autumn/winter 2006 show. With a performance that recalls the fantastical cinema of Ray Harryhausen, James Bidgood and Kenneth Anger, KM3D-1 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. Captured at 1,000 frames per second – a speed so slow that movement is almost imperceptible – the beauty of Kate’s face appears frozen, transforming her into an impenetrable deity. She is a figure of contemporary fantasy, shattering her own self-image. Made with state-of-the-art Phantom cameras, specially built for the project to create extreme slow motion and a dramatic 3D effect, KM3D-1 reflects AnOther Magazine’s raison d’etre: to champion creatives pushing the limits of what seems possible.” (Visit AnOther Magazine)
There’s no arguing that Kate Moss’s place in fashion history is secured. As far as pure iconic value, I would even put her in the same category as Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, and Marlene Dietrich. I’ve always been a huge fan of Kate’s and I think she is one of the most stunningly beautiful women on earth, and I hope she keeps on going forever like the Energizer bunny.
And in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 4 years, here’s a clip from the now infmaous Alexander McQueen’s 2006 Fall/Winter collection during Paris Fashion Week where he had Kate filmed in 3D as well and her image was holographically projected in the centre of the stage.
