Artist and filmmaker Baillie Walsh casted Kate Moss in his latest fashion film “KM3D-1”. The work continues Moss and Walsh’s journey into experimental, multi-dimensional image-making, first seen in their legendary holographic film for Alexander McQueen’s autumn/winter 2006 show.
With a performance that recalls the fantastical cinema of Ray Harryhausen, James Bidgood and Kenneth Anger, KM3D-1 places at its centre one of the most iconic female figures of the modern age. Suspended in time and space, Moss is caught inexorably in the parallax gap; a butterfly in a spider’s web.
Captured at 1,000 frames per second – a speed so slow that movement is almost imperceptible – the beauty of Moss’ face appears frozen, transforming her into an impenetrable deity. She is a figure of contemporary fantasy, shattering her own self-image.
