ART OF ILLUSION - ONE IN A MILLION
Documentary & Exhibition
An illusion is something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality.
Art of Illusion is a transmedia project that analyses the multiple facets of fashion’s illusions - through a feature-length documentary and a photo exhibition.
This project puts together fashion and science, art and humanity to give an in depth and elaborate vision of what goes on behind the glittery world: What do we hide? What do we show? Why?
