#Virtual #Drag #VR by Alison Bennett & Megan Beckwith [#geekgirl]

The work we made by Alison Bennett and Megan Beckwith, titled ‘Virtual Drag’, is a virtual reality experience featuring encounters with 3D scans of drag queen and drag king performers made with photogrammetry. The virtual reality experience goes for about ten minutes and comprises of four scenes built around the personalities of six drag personas. The personas are: the magnificent Philmah Bocks, the divine Art Simone, the knee weakening Transylvanian Gypsy Kings, and Jackie Hammer, who is simply a bit of a hot mess really….

Virtual Drag is a passive VR experience where the viewer takes on the camera point of view and traverses four scenes where they encounter the drag personas. The work was designed for presentation in a gallery with a non-tech literate audience within the constraints of a limited timeframe and budget.
