some really good/happy costume things by Nick Cave (American, b. 1959)

SOUNDSUITS in video:

costumes/clothing activated by bodies.
movement making things even more wonderful.
light-weight bouncing bits,
colour licking retinas.

choreographed dance in a garment/for the garment/

particularly pleasing materials used for suits:
human hair

About his own work:
'My work, clothing and fiber-based sculptures, collages, installations, and performances, explore the use of textiles and clothing as conceptual modes of expression and pose fundamental questions about the human condition in the social and political realm.'
