The virtual space is an immersive runway show for the graduate collection ALIENATION by Larissa Falk. It is utilizing the interactive web-VR platform Mozilla Hubs.
The space architecturally manifests in a metallically bright maze, metaphorically forcing the female runway models to walk on pre-made paths. Yet, the women are withstanding established rules – symbolically represented by counteracting the law of gravity. Familiar spacial relationships are dissolved by walking between huge structures of garment and human skin.
»My collection is a commentary on the exposure of the hidden female body. I want to encourage women to be proud and feel attractive at any age. Revealing skin and body should not be a matter of age but rather of awareness ofwhy and for whom.« – writes Larissa Falk about her collection.
The scenography of the virtual space is inviting to reflect on concepts of the male gaze and the preexisting norms forced on women. As an avatar the users are obliged to the position of the gazing subject. Further symbolics written into the space are the ambivalence of a narrow-view and a vast-view along with the exposure of the female body through garment.
