Finding the friction point between beauty and decay is a thread that runs through much of Rone's work. Rone has gone from spearheading Melbourne's fledging street art movement in the early 2000s, as a member of the Everfresh crew, to being a celebrated fixture on the international street art scene.
Immerse yourself in the VR experience of Empire (by Lester Francois, Studio Bento) - an immersive installation set amongst the decaying glory of a once-magnificent manor.
“VR is a form of documentation which allows the viewer to relive these spaces that no longer exist. Documenting my work has always been important and has informed the direction of my career - VR adds another immersive level to this” Rone
