POST Matter (2011)
POST Gravity follows its critically acclaimed launch issue with Gravity, an extra-terrestrial exploration of the ways in which humanity has sought to transcend this invisible force that binds all of life.
Pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved on the iPad, POST Gravity opens with a groundbreaking, interactive 3D fashion story powered by infra-red technology in which users can distort, bend and flip the dimensions of model Iselin Steiro. A menswear story, The Man Who Fell To Earth by Jacob Sutton and Simon Foxton sees professional skydivers dressed in this season’s sharpest suits dance in the microgravity environment of a vertical wind tunnel, and Parisian super-store Colette select their Periodic Table of accessories for summer.
Other highlights include an exclusive film shot from the International Space Station recreating Yuri Gagarin’s maiden voyage through space, a lunar transmission of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata in Morse Code by Katie Paterson, Nicolas Provost’s transformation of Las Vegas into a shimmering jewel of a spaceship, a presentation on the dynamic between NASA’s designers and science fiction cinema, Todd Cole’s cinematic journey through the SpaceX hanger and a bespoke soundtrack by the celebrated sonic artist Scanner.
