    Dir. NIRMA MADHOO- FEATURING “AZIMUTH” (SHOWCASE)
    Fashion Education & Fashion Media Producer at Anatomy VR / PHD- RMIT / Finalist in the PPC Imaginarium Awards.

    Nirma’s immersive work “Azimuth as a term is derived from the medieval Arabic meaning ‘the direction’ and denoting a measurement in a spherical system of 3D space. Azimuth suggests the virtual, 360 VR environment for which the concept will be designed. As a product of modernism, Brutalism is an architectural style with concrete as its main element. Concrete is not only the material, but it is also foregrounded aesthetically. The short film proposes imaging style and beauty in a Brutalist architecture and to fuse it with performances of fashion in order to propose an Afro-futurist identity,”

    More speakers to be announced.
