DON’T JUST MAKE IT – WEAR IT!

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave (not to be confused with the other one) has been making these amazing Soundsuits for years now. Inspired by African ceremonial costumes, Cave’s pieces fuse sculpture, fashion, and performance.Its taking the idea of disguise to a whole new level – its not just about how you are seen from the outside, but the individuals experience inside.

Here is a link to a great video that shows then in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksm7LkzyFrk&feature=related

    1. yeah, they are good arent they! i had always thought that it was THE Nick Cave that made them, and liked that a musician had a sideline of artmaking, but alas – its another nick cave.
      There are many different ones – all equally brilliant!
