Virtual Drag features 3D scans of drag queens and kings, created by queer new media artists Alison Bennett, Megan Beckwith, and Mark Payne. Encounter the larger than life drag personas of Philmah Bocks, the divine Art Simone, Jackie Hammer (a bit of a hot mess really), and the Transylvanian Gypsy Kings, all in a fantasy world that explores 'queer' digital spaces.
Project included in Official Selection for Kaleidoscope's 2016 Summer Showcase.
Alison Bennett works in ‘expanded photography’ where the boundaries of photography have shifted in the transition to digital media and become diffused into ubiquitous computing.
Mark is a visual artist working in 3D. He employs the process of photogrammetry to capture the world around him.
MEGAN BECKWITH combines live performance & multi-media to develop works that explore the relationship between the physical & virtual.
