Crystallization Dress : Iris van Herpen, 2013

The work is the result of a painstaking seven day long LiveStudio, Splash! Nick Knight captured Daphne Guinness being spashed with clear and dark water, before offering the footage to van Herpen as inspiration to create a crystallisation dress live in our studio. Van Herpen painstakingly crafted this dress out of pet G plastic, mimicking the water wrapping itself around Guinness’ body.
