‘R3Vision’ is an exhibition and screening co-curated by Brie Trenerry and Hiball showcasing works from Australian artists and designers engaging with fashion film and digital presentation in unique technologically motivated forms. Fashion film as an artistic and commercial practice has undergone a rapid evolution in a short period of time, from the process oriented SHOWStudio developed by Nick Knight to mainstream acceptance online and in bricks and mortar venues.
Physical limitations imposed by COVID-19 lockdowns have accelerated artistic and commercial digital innovation and experimentation in the fashion industry. New collaborative ventures at the intersection of art, film and fashion have evolved, as practitioners engage with novel virtual tools in the creation of moving images both for and beyond traditional screens.
The works selected for ‘R3Vision’ include fashion films and interactive experiences that utilise advanced media modalities including animation, AR, VR and photogrammetry. A traditional screen and projector will be engineered for the MARS rooftop space whilst interactive works will be experienced through personal devices via QR code (or similar) scans.
