Liberty Ross will feature in a live, interactive photo shoot on SHOWstudio.com on 28, 29 & 30th of June. Inspired by the live, pornographic video chats widely available on the web, the model is the focus of a free ‘feature show’ for which there will be live video feed. Effectively, it will act as SHOWstudio’s interactive ‘collections story’ for the Autumn/Winter ’05-6 season.
SHOWstudio viewers will have a chance to dress Liberty, acting as her ‘virtual stylist’ in turns. Stylist Jonathan Kaye will select the clothing from collections and it is our plan to let viewers familiarise themselves with the chosen garments in advance of the event. This first aspect of dressing the model will be balanced against a second part where Nick Knight will slowly undress the model, photographing the gradual ‘unravelment’ of outfits ‘on the round’, using a turntable.
The production of this project will be supported with additional project elements including a video diary authored by Liberty, source material from Jonathan, films documenting Liberty ‘on set’ over the past five years and commissions that focus on the pornographic genre that inspire the piece.
