Chicago-based artist Nick Cave surprises us with amazing human sculptures he created. In fact this is only wearable art pieces with lots of creativity behind.
Nick Cave is widely acclaimed for his exuberant “Soundsuits”—wearable sculptural forms based on the human body, intricately composed out of a vibrant assortment of second-hand materials. Simultaneously sculptures, costumes, and musical instruments, the Soundsuits are meant for motion. Cave and other dancers wear them, transforming them into transfixing blurs of color and sound for performances and video works. Contemplated on mannequins, the Soundsuits seem to embody the full range of human emotions.The selection of extravagant wearable art pieces are informed by the likes of rocket missiles and tree roots in an effort to articulate the spirit of human movement through color, texture and sculpture.

Cave combs flea markets for buttons, stuffed animals and other flotsam to build and assemble the elaborate suits – using special knotting techniques and armatures to create a webbing-like under structure to support the volume of material.
The pieces come to life through the medium of dance – offering a new connection with the user, their body and surroundings.
