About This Work

This is a photogrammetry model of Jackie Hammer from ‘Virtual Drag’, a virtual reality encounter with 3D scans of drag queens and kings via virtual reality headsets 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).

Virtual Drag is super proud to be part of The 3D Additivist Cookbook, “a compendium of imaginative, provocative works from over 100 world-leading artists, activists and theorists”.

Virtual Drag will be featured in the MELT Festival at the Brisbane Powerhouse and the Videonale Festival in Bonn in 2017.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, Deakin Motion.Lab & Media Lab Melbourne.
