Virtual Drag, a 360 video work by Alison Bennett, Megan Beckwith, and Mark Payne
‘Virtual Drag’ is a virtual reality encounter with 3D scans of drag queens and kings via virtual reality by Alison Bennett, Megan Beckwith & Mark Payne.
They have explored the potential of 3D scanning to create cyberspace encounters with the magnificent Philmah Bocks, the divine Art Simone, Jackie Hammer (a bit of a hot mess really … ), & the knee-weakening Transylvanian Gypsy Kings (aka TGK).
The intersections between virtuality and drag stem from ways of speaking about virtual reality as simulation and the drag definition of ‘realness’. Serving VR realness.
